"Data sets" are a collection of related sets of information that is composed of separate elements but can be manipulated as a unit by a computer.
Free "Business" or "Management" web-based data set sites or licensed access to data sets available through the University library are limited to census and demographic information, finance, trade, agricultural, energy, and health-care topics, for the most part. Examples of web sites and library databases for data sets in "Business" or "Management" are provided below.
"Statistics" involve the practice of collecting, analyzing, interpreting and communicating data. Statistical data in the subject area of business or management is usually a "number" and therefore more easily acquired than "data sets". Examples of web sites and library databases for statistics in "Business" or "Management" are provided below.
