Great source for locating statistics

23/06/2010

Tracking down the statistics you need can be a lot like looking for that proverbial needle in the haystack.  But if you are looking for authoritative U.S. and international data, start with the Government Statisticspathfinder from ALA's Government Documents Round Table.  It's a very clean and easy to use page, with a list of General Topics and Sites on the left-hand side, and to the right a listing of Specific Subjects.  Under each subject are links to agencies and general sites assoicated with the topic, as well as specific indicators and publications.  This is a great site to go to whether you're digging for an obscure stat or just want to know where to find the basics.
