New Resource of the Month feature

In addition to our ‘Book of the Month’ feature, we are now introducing a ‘Resource of the Month.’ Each month, one of our Subject Librarians will choose an electronic resource which they feel will be of interest to you.


January’s Resource of the Month has been selected by John Southall, Bodleian Data Librarian and Subject Consultant for Economics and Sociology.

John’s choice is Statista. This is a new subscription for a database that has been requested by a wide range of researchers.

Resource Overview

Statista is a global industry statistics database. It aggregates content from third party sources as well providing data from its own independent market research. The data included in Statista includes industry information, consumer data, company profiles, and financials. It covers sectors such as Advertising, Retail, Technology, Recreation, Transportation, Hospitality and the Internet. In addition to statistics it provides a variety of reporting, forecasting and data visualisation options.

User guides and tutorials on the use of the database are provided by Statista on Youtube and Vimeo.

Where can you access the resource

Statista is available to access via SOLO. A Single-Sign-On (SSO) is required to access this database, so access is restricted to Oxford University students and staff members.
