Statista, a global data and business intelligence platform, is now available free of charge to all UCI students, staff, and faculty. Used by over 4,500 academic institutions, the Statista portal integrates thousands of diverse topics, with data and facts from a wide range of sources, onto a single platform.


Statista infographic showing countries in the Americas and Asia and Europe in 1993 and 2008 and 2023 UCI users can access Statista’s collection of statistics, reports, and insights on over 80,000 topics from 22,500 sources in 170 industries. Information sources include market research, trade publications, scientific journals, and government databases. In addition to tables and charts, Statista also provides infographics and detailed studies on select industries and topics.

Julia Gelfand, UCI Libraries’ research librarian for applied sciences and engineering, explained that the demand for Statista within UCI has steadily increased as the database has matured into a global portal conducting its own market and consumer studies and surveys.

“We think our users seeking data and statistics will find Statista a dependable and efficient resource,” said Gelfand. “Some of the public data can be found via other channels but the site’s ease of use, downloadable visualizations, and easily cited sources make it almost a one-stop reference for a wide swath of users.”

What Types of Data Are Available?


UCI users can access more than 1.9 million statistics and forecasts as well as special reports and trend analyses from over 22,500 sources. Including both US-centric and global statistics, Statista content includes insights and facts from 170 industries and more than 150 countries, in these fields and more:

From large-scale historical data and projections to fun snapshots of consumer products and trendsetters, users will find both raw data and comprehensive reports on specific topics. Here is just a sample of the types of reports, insights, and brand awareness studies available:
