Fedstats: One Stop Shopping for Federal Statistics

That the US government provides a treasure chest of statistical information is a well known fact. That it is provided through a large number of agencies at a dizzying number of sites is also a fact that, until now, made finding the information you needed a daunting task. FedStats, the US government's one-stop shopping site for statistical information, has made that task much easier. It provides links to government statistics from over seventy government agencies, with purviews from agriculture to transportation. Access is via agency or topic (program), with much agency information also providing direct links to specific statistical series. For example, if you are looking for energy information, FedStats not only provides a link to the Energy Information Administration, but also direct links to twenty-six different energy statistics data sets. This is a key value-added feature, as anyone who has tried to find specific information at a large government site will attest. The site also offers links to regional statistics in eight subject areas. The search interface currently searches the offerings of fourteen federal agencies; contact information is also provided for these agencies.
