New Databases: Statistical Abstracts

July 23rd, 2018

in Frederick S. Pardee Management Library, Mugar Memorial Library, Pickering Educational Resources Library

We are pleased to announce that two new statistical databases are now available through the BU Libraries.

Statistical Abstract of the United States provides a summary of statistics on the social, political, and economic organization of the United States. It includes indexed tables (with attached spreadsheets) that may be searched or browsed. It can be used as a convenient volume for statistical reference, or as a finding aid for print and online sources.

Statistical Abstracts of the World is a growing collection of statistical abstracts from many countries. These statistical abstracts are generally issued by the national statistical offices of foreign governments and contain country-level data not easily found elsewhere. Global and regional statistical compendia issued by international organizations are included.

If you need any assistance with these databases, please contact a reference librarian.
