RAND California is useful for general research questions on California, its counties, and its cities. It is particulary useful for social science and public policy issues. Examples of using RAND California statistics follow.

Example 1: A library patron is seeking to identify population trends in a California city. A number of databases from RAND California could prove useful. A good place to start is a keyword search of our databases.

Users can view these data online as tables or graphs, and users can download the data to import into a spreadsheet.

Example 2: A graduate student is seeking to track education spending in a particular district, city, or county. Again, a number of databases could be useful.

See RAND California's Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) for more information.

Finally, we are constantly improving RAND California. If you have suggestions about how we can improve our format or add other databases, please write to
