How to find data sources
Last Updated: Oct 20, 2014
Through the Maps and Data Services Unit of the Special Collections Department at the Richard J. Daley Library, UIC faculty and students have access to a range of data from local to international. While the Data Services Research Guide will provide many links to help you find information, the Maps and Data Services Librarian is available to help you in your search. Please see the contact information in the right column.
UIC provides access to two excellent sources for finding data from studies.
- ICPSR Interuniversity Consortium on Political and Social Research
One of the largest collections of research data in the country, centered at the University of Michigan, the ICPSR houses studies over decades . They range from basic census information to social opinion and marketing.
- iPoll and Gallup from Roper
iPOLL is the world's most comprehensive, up-to-date source for current US public opinion data. Gallup Polls are some of the best known in the country and are also available through Roper. This resource was acquired with funds from the Library/IT Assessment.
