LexisNexis Statistical now has datasets

LexisNexis Statistical provides 3 indexes to large collections of published graphs, charts, and tables, as well as a new component called “DataSets,” which provides the raw data itself.

PUBLISHED COLLECTIONS – The collections, which are searched together, and of which about 70% are available in .pdf, are:  Index to International Statistics (IIS) (1983-present), American Statistics Index (ASI) (1973-present), and Statistical Reference Index (SRI) (1980-present).

RAW DATA – DataSets opens up when you click on “Customize Data” on the main search page. DataSets allows direct manipulation of a huge collection of raw data – to create charts, graphs, tables, and maps from single or multiple datasets, also allowing calculations, analysis, comparisons, etc. A full description is here:
