Tools in the Statistics Research Guide for
Finding Data Sources and Manipulating the Data

.

.

I am sure that many scholars and researchers do statistical analyis in their research or need to find statistical data relevant to the topics they are researching.  My Statistics Research Guide may help some of you with this research.

.

First of all my United States Government agency section now has entries for around 40 government agencies, many with involvement or content important to tourism and its related fields.

For all agencies with content and links about their statistical resources on their website, this information including links are reproduced.  Some government agencies use Bing for their site search engine, others use a Google Custom search.  Those using Bing may require using this symbol

(|)

in place of the word “OR” in a search statement like

statistics OR statistical OR data

In addition to site search engine results for statistical content on sites using Google for their site search engine, I included those using Bing in cases where it was possible to conduct a rational search and also obtain
a persistent link to the search results.

.

More importantly there are around 19 searches for the name of the agency and the terms for statistics so that one can look at many of the statistical content or the ways in which statistics have been used from the agency.  It may be interesting to know that each agency provides lots of statistical sources with lots of uses to which they have been put, but this does not help with tourism research projects specifically. Fortunately it is possible to add search terms to the left side of the search already in place to customize the search to a specific need.

.

Consider this agency entry

DATABASE SEARCH RESULTS :

DEMOGRAPHICS :
COUNTRIES: UNITED STATES: GOVERNMENT:
Search Results for Statistical Data and the Uses of Data
FROM Institute of Museum and Library Services
Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS)

This is an agency not very relevant to tourism.

Here is a link for a Google Scholar search of its content.

http://tinyurl.com/hd4tb4n

(“Institute of Museum and Library Services” OR “IMLS”) AND (statistics OR statistical OR data OR demography OR demographics OR demographic)

About 10,600 results

Now add the phrases heritage tourism or history tourism or cultural tourism to the search:

(“HERITAGE TOURISM” OR “HISTORY TOURISM” OR “CULTURAL TOURISM”) AND (“Institute of Museum and Library Services” OR “IMLS”) AND (statistics OR statistical OR data OR demography OR demographics OR demographic)

This search finds 136 results.

Here are some of the titles found.

=====================

Now if an “irrelevant” agency can find all of these tourism related research reports and articles, can one imagine what a relevant agency has hidden in Google Scholar and the other sources that I queried for this content.  This is a work in progress, additional agencies will be added.

.

The guide also has in the main section a list of databases and each that can be searched for a complex statement shows the number of statistical sources found in each database.

.

Handbooks, guides and other books listed in this guide are linked to a Google Books or Google Scholar search of the title, so the users may find a preview of the book but will find a group of sources that used that book title in their publication, so that in depth learning about the subject content of the book.

.

By the way I also do these kinds of tools (amount of tourism content in each database, links to searches of book titles in Google Scholar OR Google Books) in my Tourism Research Guide.

http://guides.temple.edu/tourism-guide

If there is an interest, I will do another post that explains what is going on with the links throughout the government agency section to searches in Google Web Search that employ the Site: —–  command in quite a few of the search links.

.

I hope that this will help some of the excellent scholars who are members of this list to have an additional technique for finding statistical sources or for learning ways to use and manipulate statistical data from government agencies.  Keep in mind scholarly articles found in searches of
Google Scholar, Temple Summon Search or one of my SITE: searches are likely to have a methodology section that could contain tips you need to
work with raw data using software and database tools.
