The Statistical Abstract of the United States is a one-volume, comprehensive summary of statistics on the social, political, and economic organization of the United States.
Emphasis is on the United States, but some tables cover regions, states, cities, and comparative international statistics. Information is gathered from all agencies of the federal government and from private, commercial, and professional sources. Earlier print editions are located in ASU Reference HA 202  (main floor) or online from the U.S. Census Bureau  (1878-2012).
