Statistical Abstract of the United States 2007–complete PDF

Unless I am overlooking something, there doesn’t seem to be a complete PDF copy of the Statistical Abstracts of the United States 2007 on the census website, but rather 45 separate PDF files for you to download. Now, I’m never in a mood to flip through 45 PDF files, and the paper copies of the Statistical Abstract at libraries are nearly always reference copies (i.e. you can’t check them out).

So here you go, we combined the 45 separate files into one complete Statistical Abstract of the United States 2007 PDF file for your statistics reading pleasure and convenience– hopefully the GPO or Census Bureau will release the Statistical Abstract as a single PDF in the future:

Here’s a NY Times article detailing the interesting sorts of facts you can find in the Stats Abs:

“More people are injured by wheelchairs than by lawnmowers, the abstract reports. Bicycles are involved in more accidents than any other consumer product, but beds rank a close second.”

“In 1970, 79 percent [of college freshmen] said their goal was developing a meaningful philosophy of life. By 2005, 75 percent said their primary objective was to be financially very well off.”
