Statistical Resources

At Everglades University, We Have Statistical Resources Which Are At Your Immediate Disposal Through Our LIRN Database Platform. 

Business Market Research Collection (ProQuest):  This electronic platform provides for students a wide range of resources when conducting business based research such as Hoover’s Company Profiles, OxResearch, etc.  Through this resource, students will have access to company overviews, market forecasts, and much more.  Utilizing this resource pretty much follows the standard ProQuest Search Format as outlined on the LIRN Support Page.  The only difference is that the Advanced Search Feature will allow users to narrow search results to specialized reports. 

DemographicsNow (Gale): This electronic resource specializes in statistics relating to census and population data.  DemographicsNow follows a different search formula than the traditional Gale Resources. The following tutorial Videos below will demonstrate the capabilities and features of this electronic resource.
