Social Explorer, an easy to use demographic and mapping database,
contains U.S. Census of population data from 1790 to present. The
site’s online tools help you visually analyze and understand the
demography of the United States through the use of interactive maps
and data reports. Browse and download thousands of census data tables
going back to the first U.S. Census, and explore thousands of
interactive historical data maps.
Developed in 1996 as GALILEO’s first digital conversion initiative and
redesigned in 2009, the Georgia Government Publications database
serves as a digital repository of publications produced by Georgia
state agencies. The GGP provides a comprehensive archive of state
publications 1994 to the present, and project participants are
actively scanning documents printed before 1994 to provide researchers
with a valuable source for online historical research.
Thanks to collaboration between the Digital Library of Georgia and the
University of Georgia’s Selig Center for Economic Growth, over a
half-century of extensive statistical data have been added to the
Georgia Government Publications database. The Georgia Statistical Abstract (1951-2007) contains many statistical tables of data
collected from Georgia state agencies.
The UGA Libraries are pleased to offer a new online guide to finding statistics. This handy resource is a great place to get oriented to
the wide range of statistics sources available through the Libraries,
and provides recommended resources for your statistics and data needs.
