CQ Press Library Database Collections

The CQ Press Library Database Collections are the definitive resources for researchers seeking information on all aspects of American government, politics, and policy. These powerful online tools offer researchers – whether students, scholars, professionals, or interested citizens – a range of tools for discovering and understanding a wealth of authoritative content.

CQ Press Database Collections are renowned for:

SAGE Business Stats

Business Stats: This collection of datasets is perfect for students and researchers working on business plan projects and marketing research assignments. Users will easily find historic, current, and projected demographic and industry data points. Students can quickly download state, country, ZIP code or even metro-level data, and then view and compare this data in maps, tables, graphs, and scatter plots. Comparing data has never been simpler.


SAGE State Stats

State Stats: This sleek, dynamic statistics database is your first stop for statistics about the United States. Data is pulled from more than 200 different government and non-government resources, including CQ Press print works published between 1995 and 2012. This data covers a wide range of topics (agriculture, defense, education, employment, crime and law enforcement, health and medicine, and more), with browsing by state or by topic, and features quarterly updates. Researchers can compare data across states or across time.

SAGE Research Methods Datasets

SAGE Research Methods Datasets is a collection of teaching datasets and instructional guides that give students a chance to learn data analysis by practicing themselves. This bank of topical, engaging practice datasets, indexed by method and data type, are optimized for use in classroom exercises or in exam papers, saving faculty hours spent sourcing and cleaning data themselves.

SAGE Research Methods Cases

SAGE Research Methods Cases are stories of how real research projects were conducted. The collection provides more than 2,200 case studies, showing the challenges and successes of doing research, written by the researchers themselves. They explain why the researchers chose the methods they did, how they overcame problems in their research, and what they might have done differently with hindsight: the realities of research that are missing from journal articles and textbooks. Cases are peer-reviewed and come with pedagogical tools including learning objectives and discussions questions.
