Save the Statistical Abstract of the United States!

President Obama's 2012 Budget Request to Congress called for the termination of the Statistical Compendia Branch of the US Census Bureau. This means that the Statistical Abstract of the United States, published since 1878 and an important reference tool for finding and locating statistical information, would no longer exist.   Please let Congress know how important it is to fund access to government collected data through this very useful resource...a favorite of librarians everywhere!
