Empirical Legal Studies uses data sets and statistics. Data sets are downloadable into stasticial software whereas statistics portals simply provide relevant statistics. For more serious empirical research, data sets that are downloadable and allow users to manipulate and tabulate data are generally what is required. Data sets generally must be downloaded into spreadsheet (like Excel) or statistical software (like SPSS and Stata). This section of the guide provides links to data sets and links to statistics available on the web.
For specific statistical resources for a particular state, please consult Georgetown Law Library's state research guide for that particular state.
