Finding Statistics

Maine Data Discovery Project

Finding Maine-related Data
Maine Data Discovery Project is a collaborative project initiated by librarians from Maine. Finding local data can be a challenge for researchers since critical economical, social and science data are often buried in unexpected sources. This project aims to provide a clear path for finding Maine data sources. The data program sheets will provide an overview of Maine-related data on specific topics.
