Statistics and Data

Questionnaire Design

Articles and News

You can search these databases for articles on topics related to the course, or to learn more about the industry, product, or service that you are interested in.

Articles are also valuable sources of both primary and secondary source data.

Can't find a report or statistic?

In cases where the specific reports, statistics, or data are not available, you will need to carry out your own research, bringing together articles or news items that provide you with information on the industry you are interested in.

A few approaches you can try:

  • Look for reports for a more general industry or market and extrapolate the information there to your particular case. For example, if you can't find a report on men's running shoes, look for a report on men's sportsware and/or men's footware.
  • Look for reports for a related or broader geographic area. If you can't find a information on the Quebec market, see if you can find data for Canada, the US, or North America.
  • Search for individual articles or news stories on your topic for insights and statistics. Sometimes those articles will mention specific reports or data sources that you can track down for more information. See Articles and News box above for links to the best resources to use.
