SHOW AND TELL

Reliable information.

When you use the Internet as a method of accessing an information source, reliable information is what you want. Information that is not only correct, but information that the reader will be able to access, unchanged, in a week, in a year, in ten years.

You want to be able to say things like, "According to the U.S. Census Bureau...."

One rich source of information from the Bureau, published both in print and online, is the Statistical Abstract.

The Statistical Abstracts of the United States is comprised of statistical information that has been abstracted, or taken, from larger reports from the Census Bureau, Bureau of Labor Statistics, Bureau of Economic Analysis, and many other Federal agencies and private organizations, to provide a great deal of information in statistical form.
