Statistical Reference Index.  Bethesda: Congressional Information Service, 1983-.  Call no. 016.3173St2.  
Indexes statistics issued by state governments in the United States and a wide variety of private publishers.  The tables themselves appear in a microfiche set located in the Government Documents Library.  A government documents librarian will assist you.

This index is the online version of the American Statistics Index, the Index to International Statistics, and the Statistical Reference Index.  It indexes statistics published by the U.S. government, state governments, international governmental organizations, and many private sources. Tables that cannot be accessed online are usually available on microfiche in the Government Documents Library, where a government documents librarian can assist you.  As an index, this source has no rival.
