Update on Statistical Abstract

This just in from the Census Bureau via GPO:

Sent: Wednesday, March 16, 2011 11:43 AM
To: Holmes, Mary A.
Subject: FW: Fw: Statistical Abstract and the Consolidated Federal
Funds Report

Dear Mr. Lansky:

The just released 2012 budget does not include funding for the
Statistical Compendia Branch which would mean the elimination of not
only the Statistical Abstract, but all titles produced by that branch
(State and Metropolitan Area Data Book, County and City Data Book, USA
Counties, Quick Facts). No new editions would be produced in print or
online. We have already started work on the Statistical Abstract 2012
edition and are still working on the local area products (highlighted
above). We will continue to work on these products and have a
contingency plan to have the Statistical Abtract 2012 out by the end
of September, due to our uncertain future.
