Statistical Abstract revived

Good news for Statistical Abstract fans: ProQuest has announced that it will be picking up where the Census Bureau left off: The Statistical Abstract of the United States has been published by the Census Bureau since 1898, but the Census Bureau announced  in March 2011 that it would cease production of the Statistical Abstract after the 2012 edition, prompting widespread concern among librarians, journalists, and researchers about the disappearance of this essential research tool. .  ProQuest will take on publication of the Statistical Abstract beginning with the 2013 edition. The move ensures continuation of this popular guide to a wide array of statistics about the population of the United States.
