Government Information, Statistics, and more!: Home

This LibGuide is an annotated list of government, statistical, and reference information websites.

This LibGuide is 'Under Construction- but is 'sort of nearly finished'.

This LibGuide is an annotated list of government (U.S., Washington State, and United Nations) and public service websites [nongovernmental organizations, or 'NGOs'] that have lots of useful/interesting information in them.  The organizations in this LibGuide are a small sample of the very many governmental and nongovernmental organizations that are working on many many different problems and have many different collections of information about those problems and the people affected by them. If there is a kind of information that you would like to be able to find through this LibGuide please let us know - asking us to help you find information is asking us to do what we love the most to do!

The 16 entries in the Federal Statistical System are now 'Finished'!  But 'Finished' is a loose category, someone is sure to have some suggestions that will improve that, or other, sections of the LibGuide).  The Federal Statistical System are agencies or bureau charged with gathering statistics on everything from people to 

Also 'Finished' are 'U.S. Census Bureau', 'U.S. Justice Department', U.S. Immigration/Citizenship and 'Library of Congress', "Other Government Websites, etc.", 'Washington State' is now 'Finished'.  I will come back to 'Other Government Websites, etc.' (suggestions appreciated) later - the Federal Government has lots of websites! The United Nations tab is now 'finished' (suggestions welcome!). 'Law Enforcement' is now 'finished' and I am intermittently working on 'Nongovernmental Organizations' (which now has several useful resources described in it). Check back soon to see the progress!

If there is a sort of information that you want reliable statistics, data, or articles on, from a governmental or Non-governmental organization, that you do not find in this or our other LibGuides, please let me know and I will try to find some useful sources to add to this LibGuide (or to another one).

Here are three Google searches that I am using to find information/agencies I haven't thought of. Searches with 'LibGuide' added to the search terms are often able to help you with your information need!: government+information+statistics+LibGuide government+information+LibGuide
