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. Use LexisNexis Statistical for better indexing.
