This guide will offer you links to the data sources formerly available through the STAT-USA database.


The STAT-USA database of federal government material on business, trade, and economic information ceased on October 1, 2010.  Much of this information is available online from the originating government agencies, but finding each online source can be time consuming.

This guide is designed to help you quickly identify material that was formerly covered in STAT-USA and connect you to the originating source. It follows the STAT-USA method of organizing material:

  • State of the Nation for U.S. information
  • Globus & NTDB for global and trade information

Links to sources were provided by the STAT-USA Internet Transition information page created to prepare for the cessation of STAT-USA.

PLEASE NOTE: Links in this guide are not regularly updated. If a link does not work try to search for the appropriate web site to locate the information.
