The printed statistics collection is located in the Library store. The material is largely historical as many statistics are now available online via the resources listed in this guide. The printed collection is organised by country or by international organisation. Please check Library Search for our holdings. You will need to complete a store request form at the Information Hub to ask that material is collected for you. Items requested from the Library store will be collected at intervals throughout the day.
The data resources listed in this guide are available to all members of the University of Sussex. Many of them are made freely available via the web, but to access some datasets you will need to register with the body that owns the data.
