Guide to—Sources of Statistics, State Statistical Abstracts,
and Foreign Statistical Abstracts
Alphabetically arranged, this guide contains references to important primary sources of
statistical information for the United States. Secondary sources have been included if
the information contained in them is presented in a particularly convenient form or if
primary sources are not readily available. Nonrecurrent publications presenting
compilations or estimates for years later than 1990 or types of data not available in
regular series are also included. Much data are also available in press releases.
Much valuable information may also be found in state reports, foreign statistical
abstracts, which are included at the end of this appendix and in reports for particular
commodities, industries, or similar segments of our economic and social structures,
many of which are not included here.
Publications listed under each subject are divided into two main groups: ‘‘U.S.
Government’’ and ‘‘Nongovernment.’’ The location of the publisher of each report is
given except for federal agencies located in Washington, DC. Most federal publications
may be purchased from the Superintendent of Documents, U.S. Government Printing
Office, Washington, DC 20402, tel. 202-512-1800, (Web site <http://www.access.
