The Statistical Abstract of the United States has been a standard source of economic and industry statistics since 1878. The government is planning to eliminate the Statistical Abstract, the State and Metropolitan Area Data Book, County and City Data Book and the entire Statistical Compendia branch of the Census Bureau. If you are so inclined, send a letter to your Congress person to reinstate the budget for the publication.
