General Statistics Citation

Citations for statistics should enable your readers to locate the table or data that you have used in your assignment or paper. At a minimum, a citation should include:

  • creator of the data (often an organization or government agency)
  • date of publication
  • where it was published
  • date that you accessed the data, only if significant (i.e., data is updated without adjustment to publication date)

For the latest information on overall citation in the different styles, see the JSR Citing Sources page.
