Sources for Finding Statistics



The following web sites are good places to start looking for statistics on all aspects of life in the United States.  The U.S. government is the largest collector and publisher of statistics in the world.  So, it is usually best to start with its sites when looking for statistics about issues related to life in California.  The California state web site may lead to useful information, too, but it often contains less data than can be found on federal web sites.  Finally, it is a good idea to check the web sites of specific cities and counties to look for local information on issues or events occurring within their jurisdictions.
