NOW AVAILABLE: Statistical Universe

The Libraries are pleased to announce the acquisition of a resource researchers can count on - Statistical Universe.

Statistical Universe unifies indexing previously available through three print products, the American Statistics Index, the Statistical Reference Index, and the Index to International Statistics. Full text or web links are provided for some citations, and the complete text of the Statistical Abstract of the United States is included in the database.

Statistical Universe offers indexing and abstracts of U.S. government statistical publications from 1973 forward. It provides detailed abstracts, indexing, and locator information for all statistical reports of general research value issued by the federal government with some reports as far back as the early 1960's. In addition, Statistical Universe provides indexing for approximately 2000 documents from international governmental organizations, e.g. the United Nations, the International Monetary Fund, etc. since 1983.

Materials not linked or provided full text online are generally available at either the Alexander Library or the Library of Science and Medicine in New Brunswick although their holdings may not show in IRIS; contact the reference desks of these libraries. Selected materials will also be available at the Robeson Library in Camden and the Dana Library in Newark. Additionally, Alexander Library and the Library of Science and Medicine hold strong collections of materials from international governmental organizations in their respective collecting areas, and by the Dana Library in Newark for business. Please contact the libraries' reference desks for holdings information.
