The Statistical Abstract contains a wealth of statistical information on a wide variety of subjects. The site has the latest version and the issues for the two previous years. The 1999 version (most current at the time of this review) had over 1400 tables grouped into 31 sections.

The data includes statistic on demographics, governmental services, and economics. The data is primarily for the United States, but the publication also contains some international statistics.

Technical Remarks:

This website has a hotlink to the full content of the Statistical Abstract. You will need to have an Adobe Acrobat Reader installed on your computer to access this content which is in PDF format. The Adobe software can be downloaded from a link on the page that comes up when the link for Adobe Acrobat PDF files is clicked.

It is possible to copy data from these tables and paste it into an Excel spreadsheet for data analysis or graphing. This can save time and reduce the errors of manually inputting data into a spreadsheet.

The site also has hotlinks to selected more popular tables from the abstract in HTML format, and also hotlinks to other commonly requested statistical data.
