How to find data sources
Last Updated: May 28, 2013
Through the Maps and Data Services section of the 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, Becky Lowery, is available to help you in your search. Please see the contact information on the right column to get in contact with her.
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.
- Gallup Brain
The Gallup Brain is a searchable, living record of more than 70 years of public opinion. Inside, you'll find answers to hundreds of thousands of questions, and responses from millions of people interviewed by The Gallup Poll since 1935.
- iPoll from Roper
iPOLL is the world's most comprehensive, up-to-date source for current US public opinion data. This resource was acquired with funds from the Library/IT Assessment.
