Data-Planet™ and EBSCO Provide Mutual Customers with Access to Statistical Data via EBSCO Discovery Service™

EBSCO and Data-Planet™ have reached an agreement that for the first time provides statistical DataSheets within a discovery service. A growing collection of more than 5,000 summary-level data records from Data-Planet will be available within EBSCO Discovery Service™ allowing mutual customers to link directly to Data-Planet DataSheets.

The Data-Planet repository of statistical content currently holds more than 3.9 billion time series presented in billions of views (maps, trends, tables, rankings). The datasets are sourced from reputable public and private organizations and cover topics across 16 broad subject areas, including education, population and income, industry, commerce, and trade, housing and construction, and much more. All of the data have been standardized and structured, and are described with 37 fields of metadata including DOI, summary-level visualizations of the data, descriptions, titles, geographic entities, data-specific elements, and standardized citations. Users can access all the available views for each data series and download the data from each DataSheet.

Data-Planet President Matt Dunie says the agreement with EBSCO is a natural extension of Data-Planet’s mission. “Our mission is to make statistical data more findable and more usable and this effort is in sync with the overall objective of discovery.”

In addition to being accessible via EBSCO Discovery Service, the Data-Planet repository is searchable via two complementary interfaces: Data-Planet Statistical Datasets and Data-Planet Statistical Ready Reference .

Now available direct from the producer and technology provider, Data-Planet can be accessed directly at Contact us at for further information.
