Question: Where can I find data sources for my social sciences research?

Answer: One of the best places to start is theĀ Internet Data Sources for Social Scientists guide available from the Cornell Institute for Social and Economic Research.

Yahoo also offers a listing of data sources for social research.

The Catherwood Library guide to Finding Data includes other data sources, places to get help with your data needs, and information about collecting and analyzing data.
