In this information age we are all experiencing information overload in two aspects: 1. Searching for information takes longer using the new internet technologies vs. the traditional online systems, and 2. We get too much recall with too little precision. A handy tool to overcome these problems is Paula Berinstein's book "Finding Statistics Online". This well-organized reference is a true problem-solver for information seekers who value their time and need to find statistical data for marketing or research purposes. Finding Statistics Online starts with three very important chapters that explain how data is gathered, the various sources of statistical data and a comparison of online vendors including excellent search tips. All other 16 chapters of the book are arranged by topic such as business, health, education etc. and consist of a description of the typical data, key producers and resources, best places to look and a case study. This book gives the information searcher various options for each subject matter including free internet resources as well as commercial vendors. Finding Statistics Online is a highly recommended reference for every searcher.

A researcher approaches the reference desk and asks how she can find the latest figures on terrorist incidents in the United States. Another approaches asking to learn how much money was spent to make the movie "Independence Day." Can you answer these questions using online resources that are available from your library? Possibly. However, if you have read Berinstein's book, that answer quickly becomes Probably.
Paula Berinstein has put together a comprehensive work that covers the Internet as well as other fee based online services. The author leads off her work with a detailed Table of Contents and Table of Figures. These are complimented by a pointer to the Directory of Online Statistical Sources locate on the Berinstein Research Web Site. This site is a companion to the book and attempts to keep users up-to-date on trends effecting the discovery and use of online statistical sources. The book contains nineteen chapters, four appendices and a solid forty-three page index. Throughout the book, the author uses a conversational tone with her readers that serves to ease the user into the complexities of statistics discovery and retrieval.
The first chapter of the book is a Quick Start designed for those familiar with online searching and statistics. This chapter contains brief abstracts as well as general and specific online services that are commonly available. The reader is presented sections dealing with availability, costs, features and benefits as well as drawbacks of these sites. The chapter also includes several comparison charts and tips on search strategy.
Chapter two is a primer on statistics.

This book may have been useful when it was first written, but virtually none of the data sources I tried based on the suggestions in the book were even in existence any more.
