U.S. Congressional Serial Set Finding List: Supplements to the Statistical Abstract of the United States (C 3.134/2:CT)

Supplements to the Statistical Abstract of the United States (C 3.134/2:CT)

As the Statistical Abstract has become a very useful and popular reference tool, it only seems natural that other volumes would be derived from it. The following titles provide more comprehensive statistics on their selected topics:

Congressional District Data Book (C 3.134/2:C 76/)

This supplement to the Statistical Abstract was intended to provide a statistical picture of each Congressional district for the Congress covered. The information was drawn from censuses of population and housing as well as the various economic censuses. The first volume was published in 1961 to cover the 87th Congress, and few other volumes were issued. (Andriot 112)

Date Congress Session Type Volume Number Serial Set Volume
1961 (87th) 87th 1st H.doc. 54 171 12415
1963 (88th) 88th 1st H.doc. 49 132 12613
1972 (93rd) 93rd 1st H.doc. 22-4 109 13051-4*

County and City Data Book (C 3.134/2:C 83/2/)

This supplement attempts to cover many of the same topics found in the Statistical Abstract and provides statistics on those topics for the county and city level as well as for Congressional districts, regions, and metropolitan statistical areas. Data is drawn from the Economic Census and other sources. (Andriot 112)

Historical Statistics of the United States (C 3.134/2:H 62/)

This infrequently published supplement to the Statistical Abstract covers many of the same subjects found in the parent volume and includes time series for the data covered, "providing a statistical history of U. S. social, economic, political, and geographic development during periods from 1610 to 1970." (Andriot 112)
