FedStats


PUBLIC
This database is freely available to the general public via the Internet.

Description

A one-stop shopping mall for statistics published by the federal government. FedStats covers agencies whose statistical activities are at least $500,000 annually. Separate sections include:

  • Topic Links A-Z: A list of hundreds of topics.
  • MapStats: Provides socioeconomic profiles of states and counties.
  • Agencies Listed Alphabetically and Agencies by Subjects: Both summarize key statistics and offer contact information.
  • Data Access Tools: Links to selective databases.
  • Press Releases.
  • Kids' Pages.

FedStats also includes a search engine, but it is not a very good one.

The federal government last updated FedStats in March 2007.  Use sources cited below in the Print Counterpart and Related Databases sections for more current information.
