When your research calls for statistical information from any federal agency of the United States, the first place you should look is FedStats - the official Web site for government facts and figures. This site organizes all in one place research statistics from more than 100 government agencies, from the Administration of Children and Families to the U.S. Geological Survey.
You can look for your topic under Topic Links A to Z, where you'll find research and statistics for a very wide range of subjects including agriculture, births and deaths, crime, diseases and drugs, the economy, family issues, health, natural resources, social issues, taxes, wages, and hundreds more. Alternatively, consult the alphabetical list of federal agencies to refine your search that way. Not sure where to look? FedStats' Search function makes it easy to locate exactly the information you seek.
This informative site can help you research your subject according to geography, as well; the MapStats page gives you easy access to statistical profiles of any state, county, city, congressional district, or federal judicial district. Just click on the map to drill down to the numbers for the area you're interested in. In some cases, local statistics are given along with comparisons to state, national, and international figures.
Younger Web surfers can find helpful information for school reports here, too. The Kids' Pages link takes you to a list of Web pages by agency that are designed especially for school-age Internet sleuths.
FedStats is committed to sharing the results of government research with all citizens through this free online source. When it's hard government numbers you're after, look to FedStats first.
