We recommend the resources below to find data and statistics on various topics. Using a search engine, like Google can also be helpful in accessing statistics online. For example, searching child labor statistics on Google will bring up results relevant to the topic. When using a search engine, you can specify the domain (government, nonprofits).
A search for child labor statistics:site.gov will exclusively return results from government websites
Another good rule of thumb, is to go to the county or state department websites. For example, if you are looking for data or statistics about free lunch programs or english language learners in New York State, I would check out the New York State Department of Education website.
