Q&A: How do you find annual demographic and economic data on the states?

There are different ways to find economic and demographic data on the states. One way is to go to government agencies collecting and distributing such data, like the U.S. Census Bureau and the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Another way to get started, which does not require knowing which government agency may collect desired data, is to use ProQuest Statistical Insight; it also can be accessed from the Rod Library home page, under Databases A-Z. This product's Find a Table search form includes a box in which to enter a variable such as per capita income and checkboxes for narrowing the search. These narrowing options include: *geographic areas, such as by states *demographics, such as by sex *economic, such as by occupation *frequency of data, such as annual *period of coverage (all years, last x years, or a range of years) ProQuest Statistical includes data from the U.S. government, state governments, associations, and international organizations. Some tables are in PDF format and some are in Excel.
