DATABASE SEARCHING TECHNIQUES:

Tools in the Statistics Research Guide for
Finding Data Sources and Manipulating the Data

.

.


I am sure that many scholars and researchers do statistical analyis in 
their research or need to find statistical data relevant to the topics 
they are researching.  My Statistics Research Guide may help some of you 
with this research.

.

First of all my United States Government agency section now has entries 
for around 40 government agencies, many with involvement or content 
important to tourism and its related fields.

.

Statistics Research Guide: United States Federal Agency Section

.

http://guides.temple.edu/statistics-sources/gov-stats#s-lg-box-wrapper-9458752

OR

http://tinyurl.com/jl3c428

.

For all agencies with content and links about their statistical resources 
on their website, this information including links are reproduced.  Some 
government agencies use Bing for their site search engine, others use a 
Google Custom search.  Those using Bing may require using this symbol

(|)

in place of the word "OR" in a search statement like

statistics OR statistical OR data

In addition to site search engine results for statistical content on sites 
using Google for their site search engine, I included those using Bing in 
cases where it was possible to conduct a rational search and also obtain
a persistent link to the search results.

.

More importantly there are around 19 searches for the name of the agency 
and the terms for statistics so that one can look at many of the 
statistical content or the ways in which statistics have been used from 
the agency.  It may be interesting to know that each agency provides lots 
of statistical sources with lots of uses to which they have been put, but 
this does not help with tourism research projects specifically. 
Fortunately it is possible to add search terms to the left side of the 
search already in place to customize the search to a specific need.

.

Consider this agency entry


DATABASE SEARCH RESULTS :
STATISTICS :
DATA :
DEMOGRAPHICS :
COUNTRIES: UNITED STATES: GOVERNMENT:
Search Results for Statistical Data and the Uses of Data
FROM Institute of Museum and Library Services
Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS)

This is an agency not very relevant to tourism.

Here is a link for a Google Scholar search of its content.


http://tinyurl.com/hd4tb4n

("Institute of Museum and Library Services" OR "IMLS") AND (statistics OR 
statistical OR data OR demography OR demographics OR demographic)

About 10,600 results

Now add the phrases heritage tourism or history tourism or cultural 
tourism to the search:


("HERITAGE TOURISM" OR "HISTORY TOURISM" OR "CULTURAL TOURISM") AND 
("Institute of Museum and Library Services" OR "IMLS") AND (statistics OR 
statistical OR data OR demography OR demographics OR demographic)

This search finds 136 results.


http://tinyurl.com/j7q3nvo


Here are some of the titles found.

=====================


Now if an "irrelevant" agency can find all of these tourism related 
research reports and articles, can one imagine what a relevant agency has 
hidden in Google Scholar and the other sources that I queried for this 
content.  This is a work in progress, additional agencies will be added.

.

The guide also has in the main section a list of databases and each that 
can be searched for a complex statement shows the number of statistical 
sources found in each database.

.

Handbooks, guides and other books listed in this guide are linked to a 
Google Books or Google Scholar search of the title, so the users may find 
a preview of the book but will find a group of sources that used that book 
title in their publication, so that in depth learning about the subject 
content of the book.

.


By the way I also do these kinds of tools (amount of tourism content in 
each database, links to searches of book titles in Google Scholar OR 
Google Books) in my Tourism Research Guide.

http://guides.temple.edu/tourism-guide

If there is an interest, I will do another post that explains what is 
going on with the links throughout the government agency section to 
searches in Google Web Search that employ the Site: -----  command in 
quite a few of the search links.

.

I hope that this will help some of the excellent scholars who are members 
of this list to have an additional technique for finding statistical 
sources or for learning ways to use and manipulate statistical data from 
government agencies.  Keep in mind scholarly articles found in searches of
Google Scholar, Temple Summon Search or one of my SITE: searches are 
likely to have a methodology section that could contain tips you need to
work with raw data using software and database tools.
