Proquest Statistical Abstract of the United States: The National Data Book   
(Place a standing order)   
Bernan Press   
 

Published annually by the Federal Government since 1878, The Statistical Abstract of the United States is the best-known statistical reference publication in the country, and perhaps, the world. You’ll find it behind nearly every reference desk in U.S. libraries as the authoritative go-to source. Librarians value the Statistical Abstract as both an answer book and a guide to statistical sources. As a carefully selected collection of statistics on the social, political, and economic conditions of the United States, it is a snapshot of America and its people.

ProQuest and Bernan have now taken on responsibility for updating and releasing this publication, the most used statistical reference tool in libraries. We bring to this task ProQuest’s 35 years of experience acquiring, abstracting, and indexing Federal Government statistical publications and tables and Bernan’s 60 years of providing libraries with essential government publications and quality service.

The Statistical Abstract print edition resembles the Census version that users know and love, plus more with:

  • Thousands of tables from hundreds of sources and valuable, detailed bibliographic documentation
  • Updated introductory sections and back-of-the-book index
  • 8 ½” x 11” hardcover format to withstand heavy use
  • 25% larger type for easier reading

Mutli-volume discounts are available. Call Customer Relations at 1-800-865-3457 for more information.



Reviews and Recommendations

“… this is an indispensable purchase for all libraries. Summing Up: Essential.”

      Choice (June 2013)


Award Winner, A Core Collections Star Title

      EBSCO (May 2013)


Award Winner, Best Reference of 2012

      Library Journal (December 2012)


Patrons in need of serious data on the United States, including nitty-gritty on the lives of its inhabitants, need look no further than Statistical Abstract (ProQuest and Bernan, Jan.), but the book is also a browser’s dream, offering a mature alternative for those who’ve outgrown Guinness Book of World Records and your library’s various almanacs. It’ll be a welcome addition, too, for patrons tired of the bloviated Internet rhetoric that can’t stand up to table after table on such topics as school crime and safety, campaign finances, corporate profits, and immigration..... The careful presentation of this work is a joy to behold. Each section of statistics is preceded by an overview describing the sources of the numbers and offering further-reading leads where appropriate; appendixes provide more such detail as well as the happily retro, self-effacing (if statistically standard) “Limitations of the Data.”

      Library Journal (February 2013)


ProQuest and Bernan are to be congratulated for continuing to provide librarians and users necessary statistical information. The publishers have succeeded in giving researchers of any age statistics at a reasonable price in print and online.

      Booklist (April 15, 2013)


"The Stat Abstract lives! Here’s a story with a happy ending: The Statistical Abstract of the United States — which seemed destined for history’s morgue — has survived… The Stat Abstract, I wrote, has two outstanding virtues: “First, it conveniently presents in one place a huge amount of information from a vast array of government and private sources... Second, the footnotes show where to get more information.”

      Robert Samuelson, The Washington Post (December 12, 2012)


A treasure trove of interesting, odd and illuminating statistics is revealed in the Statistical Abstract of the United States.

      New York Post (December 21, 2012)


Award Winner, Outstanding Academic Title of 2013
