Statistics can be helpful as you attempt to prove a point in your paper or project.
The Statistical Abstract of the United States, published since 1878, is the authoritative and
comprehensive summary of statistics on the social, political, and economic organization of the United States. Abstracts for 1878 through 2012 are available at the US Census website.
We can use the information from the 2012 Abstract to locate recent statistics from original sites. View the video below to learn how to do that.
The 2012 Edition was the last edition published by the US Government. Since 2013 the Statistical Abstract of the United States has been published by ProQuest, and print copies are available in the Morgan Library.
