Via Paul Krugman, I’m led to this WaPo piece about the imminent demise of the Statistical Abstract of the United States, which is an invaluable resource for all manner of at-a-glance data. Regardless of one’s ideology or political leanings, I think we can all agree that more information is better, less information not as good, and the Abstract is a veritable treasure trove. This decision should not stand. A grassroots effort is needed here to petition the powers that be. Also, let them hear from you at the Census Bureau: ACSD.US.Data(AT)census.gov. Thanks.
Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor implied. If you could repeat previously discredited memes or steer the conversation into irrelevant, off topic discussions, it would be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous.
