Citations for statistics should enable your readers to locate the table or data that you have used in your assignment or paper.  At a minimum, a citation should include:

  • creator of the data (often an organization or government agency)
  • date of publication
  • where it was published
  • date that you accessed the data, only if significant (i.e., data is updated without adjustment to publication date)

Learn more and see examples.

Refer to your style manual, ask a librarian, or confer with your professor if your specific data set does not contain the elements needed to draft a useful citation.
