E-Government Tool Reviews: American FactFinder

The American FactFinder website, maintained by the U.S. Census Bureau, “is the primary way to access data” from more than 100 annual surveys and censuses. There are four main avenues for discovering Census information on the American FactFinder website: Community Facts, Guided Search, Advanced Search, and the Download Center.

You also have access to government information librarians through the Government Information Online (GIO) virtual Ask A Librarian service.  These librarians are experts at finding information from government agencies of all levels (local, state, regional, national international) on almost any subject.
