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
