ProQuest® Statistical Abstract of the United States 2014
National Data Book
Statistical Abstract book

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 (“How much corn is grown in Iowa?”) and a guide to statistical sources (“What organization has the most authoritative data on foreclosures?”). As a comprehensive collection of statistics on the social, political, and economic conditions of the United States, it is a snapshot of America and its people.

The editors at ProQuest have endeavored to continue the tradition established by the Census Bureau Statistical Compendia Branch. Like its predecessors, the ProQuest Statistical Abstract is designed to serve as a convenient volume for statistical publications and sources.

New in 2014: Over 50 new tables added on a wide variety of topics, including characteristics of opposite-sex and same-sex couple households, medical records breaches and workplace violence, and much, much more.

Product Overview

The ProQuest Statistical Abstract will be available in both print and online versions. The print version will resemble past editions and contain roughly the same number of tables, detailed bibliographic documentation, the back-of-the-book index, and updated introductory sections, plus more, with:

  • Thousands of tables from hundreds of sources and valuable, detailed bibliographic documentation (also in the online edition)
  • Updated introductory sections and back-of-the-book index
