Maybe it's just because it's lunchtime and I'm hungry...
but when I scanned a word cloud of the titles from all the reports downloaded in our Statista database last month, there seemed to be a strong trend toward research about foods & beverages: lunch, candy, milk, drink, restaurant, consumption, cutlery, cocoa...
Other themes from February that I spotted:
- health & medical: hospital, ehealth, biomedical, fitness
- flying & travel: aircraft, Boeing, Airbus, travel, lodging, camping, Airbnb
- elements & science: cerium, lanthanum, radiation
All together, more than 4100 Statista items (barcharts, dossiers, reports, etc.) were viewed by SFU researchers in February, and over 460 items were downloaded in jpg, pdf, xls, or ppt formats. Wonderful to see such frequent use of a resource that is still relatively new for us!
If you've not yet tried Statista, its short description is "a statistics portal that integrates statistics from thousands of sources and provides simple exports of both data and charts in multiple formats." For more info, check out my earlier posts:
