About the Historical Statistical Abstracts

Just as the Statistical Abstract of the United States is considered the best-known statistical reference publication in the country, and perhaps, the world, the Historical Statistical Abstracts of the United States offers the opportunity for researchers to look into the past to discover the economic trends, the social climate and the demographic makeup of the U.S., and easily compare that to current day trends.

In addition to the PDFs, for the historical volumes, ProQuest has unlocked all 132 years of and made them available as Excel spreadsheets.
