Finding Data & Statistics

A guide to finding statistical information and downloadable datasets

Starting Points & Finding Aids

A few important notes on the Statistical Abstract:

  • Formerly published by the US Census Bureau, but produced commercially since 2012, due to federal budget cuts . However, most of the statistics still come from the federal government.
  • It is available in print going back to 1879.
  • See the 2012 and earlier online editions from the Bureau of Census here.
  • Note the sources of the tables -- this is a good way to find more statistics on the same topic.

► For more potential starting points, see Statistical Quick Reference (left).

► Remember that annual statistical publications and other references should give the sources of their statistical tables, and you can look up those sources to find more data.
