An Acquisition Resource

Welcome

We hope you find this compilation useful in your web-based research. By NO stretch of the imagination is this resource intended to be a comprehensive tool but rather a guide to find "fast facts"  like those you find in an almanac or statistical abstract. 

 

In some cases more current data may be available elsewhere "on or via" the web. However,  this compilation of resources can often assist in helping you access them.  While some of the "annual" or  "state of..."  reports are lengthy, they often contain a chapter or section of useful overview material and statistics. 

 

Make sure to use the Edit/Find menu or "Control F" to FIND keywords on this page

Finally, this compilation can also serve as an acquisition guide to resources. New material is added often.
