Statistical Compilations for Other Nations and States

Most nations publish an annual statistical compilation similar to the US Statistical Abstract, as do most state and provincial governments. Titles vary, but are usually something like "statistical abstract," "statistical yearbook," or "statistical handbook" (or equivalent titles in the local language). To find these in the Library (including links to any online editions), search the UCLA Library Catalog for "[name] statistics periodicals" as a  

Library of Congress Subject Heading (LCSH) in UC Library Search. Some examples:

Area Studies

For resources related to specific countries or regions, you may also find useful information in area studies guides.

Cultural Studies

For resources focusing on a specific demographic group, you may also find useful information in one of these guides.
