Just the Facts, Ma'am

Ah, geek love. If the Reports/Retorts Drudge aren't doing the job for you, there's always the real world. Useful links to official statistical reference bureaus throughout the US, and many other nations.

Thanks for noticing us.

We designed Facster™ so that it:

… has easy to use key-word searching. We are the only freely available internet resource that lets you search within the Abstract.

… provides links to source internet sites from your search results.

… lets you bookmark your search results.

… contains the entire electronic version of the Abstract, not the abbreviated tables in the bound edition or the government published .pdf files.

… presents all data in the same easy to read time-series format, unlike the published data series, which are all in different formats.

… lets you combine information from different parts of the Abstract.

… allows easy browsing of the Abstract’s information.

… lets you get "Random Facts" from the entire site or restricted to an area of interest.

… provides links to many other abstracts including most national governments.

Facster™ includes the California Statistical Abstract and will continue to grow with other government statistics.

You would think someone would have done this already!

Facster™ is still in its infancy. We have innovative plans to make it an even more useful freely accessible resource, but we need help.

We are looking for sponsors and/or business partners to help grow the site. Any help in this regard, even just spreading the word, would be greatly appreciated.
