How do I cite data and statistics?

How to cite data or statistics appropriately will depend on the citation style you're using, such as Chicago or APA. You can find links to common citation style manuals and resources in the Citation and Bibliographies guide. 

Some databases will also provide sample citations for data or statistics. Always double check these auto-generated citations against a reliable guide because they frequently contain errors.
