  • Things to Remember When You "Google" 

Pay attention to the source. If you don't recognize the name of the organization / news source that published the web page, find out who they are before trusting their information. Especially when it comes to controversial issues, there is a lot of biased information floating around out there...

- Tip: Use Google Advanced Search to limit search to .gov sites. Government agencies are often the best source of reliable statistics.
