Exploring Statistics and Demography Resources on the Web
Despite the rapid proliferation of statistics and demography resources on the Web, there has been little attempt to document them. This study represents an attempt at identifying and evaluating some of the most important and useful resources currently available in these fields. The results suggest that the field of statistics is much better documented on the Web than demography. Large industrialized countries, particularly the United States, are much better represented than many smaller countries. Technical innovations that allow users to create customized data sites, analyze statistical data online, and graph results in elaborate three-dimensional models make the Web a far superior resource in many ways to traditional paper resources.
