TIP: If you need statistics on a particular segment of the population, check organizations and research institutes that focus on that segment. Many of them collect statistics on their topic(s) of interest, and many also have websites. Use The Encyclopedia of Associations (REF-DESK HS 17 .G334) to look for these organizations. If you want to search the Internet for their websites, we suggest that you limit your search to the “.org” and “.edu” domains.
