Introducing Data Guides!

What are Data Guides?

Data Guides are a new download resource on SAGE Stats that provides all data visualizations for a specific data series in PowerPoint or PDF format. The visualizations are accompanied by critical thinking questions that aim to jumpstart and encourage your preliminary analysis of the charts and the underlying data that feeds them. These questions focus on identifying and analyzing trends in line charts and maps. The visualizations and questions may be used together or separately.

There are multiple Data Guides available, one for each comparison type and one for the data series itself. After creating a chart comparison, navigate to the Export feature and download the Data Guide for the specific comparison chart you created.

Data for the Non-Data Librarian

Would you like to confidently answer students’ questions about data and statistics?

Learn how to expertly approach these questions by watching an August 2015 webinar featuring librarians Jen Darragh (Johns Hopkins University) and Hailey Mooney (Michigan State University). In this one hour webinar, Darragh and Mooney discuss the difference between data and statistics, search strategies, ways of finding local area data, and how to leverage free and paid data resources.
