Carissa's Column: StatAbs – Collections of Tables on Selected Topics
The Statistical Abstract of the United States is arguably THE starting point for locating statistics on any topic. I could be writing this entry for the rest of the year – during which time the next StatAbs would come out – and still not do justice to the wealth of information contained therein. Instead, I will content myself by making note of a “Supplemental Feature” of the current StatAbs that may expedite some of your research.
Under the heading of “Collections of Tables on Selected Topics,” a series of tables pertaining to defined groups have been compiled under one link. For example, if you are searching for statistics on the “Black, African American Population,” click the link to be taken to a compilation of tables in the current StatAbs that contain statistics on this group. Other groups covered include the “American Indian, Alaska Native Population,” “Asian Population,” “Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander Population,” “Asian, Pacific Islander Population,” and “Hispanic or Latino Origin Population.”
