    If a simple google search for a study or statistic about a profession doesn't result in anything, is anyone aware fo a good resource to find such things (for article writing)?

    just refine your search. I'm sure there's not much that you cant find using google.

    Ampix0,

    I love your question because it illustrates how dependent we have become on the internet to find information. So much so that we don't even know how to find information sometimes without it.

    Davids suggests a good approach. Try using search operators to narrow your search. Here is a pretty good guide,

    http://www.googleguide.com/advanced_operators_reference.html

    So if you can't find information on the internet and you are looking for information about a profession, you could try finding out (from the internet) what trade journals have information about that profession. Alternatively you could call a company where people who hold that profession work and try asking them over the phone about where you could find such information (or maybe they already know). If all that sounds cumbersome and time consuming that's because it is.

    Best,

    Shawn
