Dulcinea's Insight

  • Individual governments provide information and statistics about their countries. If you’re looking for more in-depth information, however, try a database of resources like the Duke University International and Area Studies Web site.
  • Although there is valuable information on many government Web sites, beware that some countries' governments suppress information. Double check what you learn with an objective source, especially when researching countries that have a history with Communist governments.
