Statistical Information

There are several statistical sources to consider when seeking government data. Facts and data can be found from general resources in a myriad of areas (e.g. healthcare, census data, trade data) as well as from specific federal departments (Department of Transportation, Department of Education, Bureau of Labor Statistics, etc.). Economic data is also available for consumers relating to price indexes, employment summaries, and GDP.
