Although the Map & Data Library is physically closed, we are still available remotely and happy to help. We can conduct consultations using online teleconferencing software. Please feel free to contact us at or use our help form. We have a number of tutorials available, are still supplying software licenses, and have compiled a list of resources for working with COVID-19 data.

Please note that our computer lab is also accessible for use through remote access. See this link for more information.

States and local areas - data books

The State and Local Area Web site allows online access to the data provided by the Statistical Abstract supplement publications, State and Metropolitan Area Data Book (SMADB) and County and City Data Book (CCDB). They are convenient statistical summaries of the social and economic structure of states, metropolitan and micropolitan areas, counties, cities, and places in the United States. Data for both the Web site and print publications is compiled and managed by the Statistical Compendia Branch of the U.S. Census Bureau and is acquired from statistical publications and electronic sources published by various nonprofit organizations, private businesses, and Federal statistical agencies. Note that the U.S. Census Bureau terminated the collection of data for the Statistical Compendia program effective October 1, 2011, and as such no new publication will be produced. Latest (and last) issue is 2010.
