What is Statista?

Statista is a database covering statistics on a wide range of topics like business, media, and demographics from trustworthy sources. It includes both free data like government information, as well as proprietary information purchased from market research firms. Researchers can easily find the sources of the statistical data, and also download the results in multiple formats (XLS, PPT, PNG, and PDF). Scholars can use Statista to look at the big picture or specific details when doing statistics research. Find the answers to questions like:

  • What is the market analysis and forecast for a specific company? What about for a specific product?
  • How do Americans read, and how does this compare worldwide?
  • Why does a specific age group live tweet a television show or movie?
