Due to the government shutdown, some government websites have gone dark, including the Census site. Other sites, including EPA and BLS, remain live and functioning. Other sites indicate they will not be updated regularly, such as PubMed or the Department of Energy.
If you require documents or statistics from these sites for your research or teaching, please contact a librarian for alternative ideas.
NOTE: the library subscribes to many databases that provide government information. Some suggestions for finding government information from the library databases during this time include:
- Social Explorer for Census information
- Proquest Statistical for a variety of statistics
- Data-Planet for a variety of government data
- MEDLINE for PubMed
- ERIC through Proquest
- Proquest Congressional for legislative updates and CRS reports
- Intergovernmental organization websites for U.S. socioeconomic data such as WDI, IMF (library database), or UN sites.
- Print books such as the U.S. Statistical Abstract.
Ars Technica has a fairly complete list of which sites are down.
