The entry for the "Statistical Abstract of the United States: 2012, 131st ed." by the U.S. Census Bureau features the U. S. Census Bureau website for the abstract.


In addition to being the quintessential statistical resource of all time, Statistical Abstract is a Notable Document for 2011 simply because this edition will be the last produced by the Census Bureau and distributed through FDLP. Future editions will be published commercially, so librarians will still have options for maintaining the continuity of their print collections. A classic reference tool.
