Finding Data & Statistics
Welcome to the UC San Diego Library's guide for data and statistics!
Data repositories and datasets linked here are our most frequently used. Subject-specific guides, many of which include sections focused on disciplinary datasets, are also available. If you need help finding particular statistics or data, please reach out to a librarian for assistance.
Off-Campus Access & Wireless
Many of the resources listed on this guide have been licensed by the UC San Diego Library. Off-campus access, as well as on-campus wifi access, is restricted to UC San Diego students, faculty and staff. Follow the links below to enable access on campus using your laptop, or off-campus access using VPN.
VPN (Cisco AnyConnect Client)
Download VPN software on your computer to get off-campus access for everything you'd get using the proxy. If you're having problems with proxy, VPN is a good alternative. When connecting, select the 'althruucsd' setting.
