Before the rise of the automobile, urban areas like Cleveland were connected by a vast network of street railways and the cities in a region by a wider network of interurban railways. In the nineteenth century they were horse-drawn, but during the 1890s the power of electrified streetcars opened nearby farmlands for new suburban development.

New Trial Subscription to SAGE Stats

Link to SAGE Stats

Starting now through May 6th, all OhioLINK members will have access to SAGE Stats. It features statistical data series created from more than 200,000 government and non-government datasets.

The trial includes access to SAGE’s full data suite:  State Stats, Local Stats, Business Stats, U.S. Political Stats. The State, Local, and Business Stats modules are integrated on the SAGE Stats platform. The U.S. Political Stats module has its own platform because the data conforms to different geographies (i.e. congressional districts).

Once you've tried it, take the SAGE Stats Survey to let us know what you think about it.
