The service was discontinued on September 30, 2010. Today, the information previously provided by STAT-USA is compiled by individual agencies and offered on the agency’s website free of charge.

Statistical Abstract of the United States
The U.S. Census Bureau is terminating the collection of data for the Statistical Compendia program effective October 1, 2011. The Statistical Compendium program is comprised of the Statistical Abstract of the United States and its supplemental products - - the State and Metropolitan Area Data Book and the County and City Data Book. In preparation for the Fiscal Year 2012 (FY 2012) budget, the Census Bureau did a comprehensive review of a number of programs and had to make difficult proposals to terminate and reduce a number of existing programs in order to acquire funds for higher priority programs. The decision to propose the elimination of this program was not made lightly. To access the most current data, please refer to the organizations cited in the source notes for each table of the Statistical Abstract.

Lost Docs Project Blog The purpose of this blog is to provide a public listing of documents submitted to the Government Printing Office (GPO)’s Lost Docs Reporting Form for what are called fugitive documents. Fugitive documents are federal publications which have NOT been cataloged and/or disseminated through the Federal Depository Library Program (FDLP). Reporting fugitive documents to GPO allows them to be cataloged and archived so their contents are not lost to history. Not all federal documents are within the scope of the FDLP, but nearly any published federal document qualifies for GPO’s national bibliography. The Lost Docs blog is a project of Free Government Information.
