The hardest part of checking a claim is often finding reliable data to check it against. To help you do this, we have created this database of resources we have used in doing our own research or which we have created. Each comes with a description of the information it provides and its strengths and weaknesses.

If you’re seeking information, please select the region then check the topics we have information on. The Info Finder is a work in progress and will not answer every query you may have. We will be adding more resources in the months ahead and developing ways for you to provide feedback and suggest resources to add.

Meantime, if you need more help with research, consider contacting our commercial research service TRi Facts. This is a charged-for service, providing research and information.
