Join Swem research librarians to see demonstrations of our latest databases. Today's featured databases are State Stats, Statistical Abstracts of the World, and CQ Press Voting and Elections Collection.

State Stats:
CQ Press provides comprehensive data coverage of each state including health care, crime, education and more. Data from more than 80 different sources covering more than 15 years.

Statistical Abstracts of the World:
A collection of the statistical abstracts of approximately 40 countries, both individually searchable and cross searchable. These statistical abstracts are generally issued by the national statistical offices of foreign governments and contain country-level data not easily found elsewhere. Global and regional statistical compendia issued by international organizations and research firms are also included.

CQ Press Voting and Elections Collection:
Integrates data, authoritative analyses, concise explanations, and historical material to provide a research and reference tool on voting and elections in America. From the American voter, to major and minor political parties, to actual races for Congress, the presidency, and governorships, the collection provides context-driven intelligence on the state of elections in America. Chronological coverage varies by office. Presidential coverage begins 1789. Election data can be downloaded.
