I can’t even pretend to understand the meaning of some of the economics statistics that are produced by the US government, but I do understand why the GDP and the unemployment rate are important. You can research those stats and more at the Bureau of Economic Analysis and the Bureau of Labor Statistics. -A Kaiser

We have a website dedicated to information on active shooters on campus. Go here for links and research tips about the subject.
One of my favorite sites is the US Census homepage.
The site won’t win any awards for being user friendly, but if you spend some time with it, you can get detailed information about the US population.
The American Factfinder area is the place to go for these statistics. You can quickly pull up fact sheets on states and communities, but the real power comes from looking at the Data Sets. Choose the Decennial Census from the menu of the left hand side of the page and then pick one of the Summary Files (SF 1 is a good place to start). Click on Detailed Tables and then use the menus to look up data.
