Data and statistics -- what's the difference? 
Datasets are sets of raw numbers that need to be manipulated to produce information. Statistics have already been analyzed to produce specific bits of information -- a table, a graph, a chart, a percentage.

What are data services?
I help students and faculty find and use data in various social science disciplines. I'm available for class instruction as well as consulting one-on-one in person or via e-mail.
