About Statistics

Statistical information can be found in many sources, both print and online.  Given the necessary time for a book to come to press, the most recent information is likely to be found online.  Another way to find stats is to note the statistical sources cited in background and reference sources you consult.  It is always a good idea to go to the source and see what the actual study says.
