The 2012 Statistical Abstract of the United States is an annual factbook containing more than 1,400 tables of social, political and economic facts about our nation and the world. Among the broad topics covered are marriage and divorce, health, education, law enforcement, national security, social insurance, business, science and technology, agriculture, natural resources, energy, information and communications, banking and international statistics. The source of the data is not limited to the Census Bureau — statistics are also derived from other federal agencies and private sources. Data in this edition are generally for the most recent year or period available by spring 2011 in both Excel and PDF formats. 

The 2012 Statistical Abstract of the United States is available through your Alameda County Library within the Business, Genealogy, and Reference Research/Subject Guides databases.
