Our mission

Free Government Information (FGI) is a place for initiating dialogue and building consensus among the various players (libraries, government agencies, non-profit organizations, researchers, journalists, etc.) who have a stake in the preservation of and perpetual free access to government information. FGI promotes free government information through collaboration, education, advocacy and research.

Current Awareness for Statistical Information


Two of the most useful current awareness tools I use to learn about new reports and developments are InfoDocket by Gary Price Full Text Reports by Gary Price and Shirl Kennedy. I only recently learned that they have another site that announces statistically-focused reports:

The announcement about StatFountain says:

If you haven’t already, do take a look at StatFountain, a new sister blog to FTR that aggregates statistically-focused reports. We know that people are often looking for numbers; it may be more helpful to corral all of these things together, categorized and tagged for easier searching. Posts are now being routinely split between FullTextReports and StatFountain.

StatFountain is a great resource and worth monitoring regularly. (Of course, it has its own RSS feed).

StatFountan just links to resources, it does not store them. As they remind us: “It’s the Internet. Stuff gets relocated, goes missing, ends up behind a paywall… whatever. If you see something potentially useful, download it and save it right then and there.”

Check out our blogroll (in the navigation column on the right side of most FGI pages) for other recommended current awareness sites!
