A current awareness resource for students & faculty members in Business & Economics

What do cigarettes, golf, sugar, and energy distribution have in common?

Published November 7, 2017 by Mark Bodnar

I just received the latest usage report on our Statista database and thought I'd share some interesting trends: 

During the month of October, SFU researchers used Statista to:

  • view almost 5000 charts, topic reports, dossiers... more than 160/day;
  • download over 580 images, slides & documents; and
  • research topics ranging from golf (one of the BUS 360W cases assigned this term) to smartphones, confectionery, crime, and far, far beyond.
    • See the word cloud below for the terms that came up most often in the titles of the reports & charts downloaded from Statista here at SFU last month.

If you haven't tried Statista yet, check out my earlier blog posts that mention this useful searching tool.
