Statistical Sources : NationMaster & StateMaster

NationMaster is a web-based compilation of world statistics
from sources such as the CIA World Factbook, the UN, and
the OECD. Statistics, which can be searched or viewed
by subject or country, cover a wide-range of categories, from
general demographical information to statistics in such areas
as education, economics, government, labor, immigration and
health. You can also generate comparative charts and graphs
using a simple pull-down menu of options.

StateMaster, a source for U.S. statistics, was released on
April 11th. The new resource provides statistical data from
a variety of sources, including the U.S. Census Bureau and
other governmental entities.
