Urban Institute: Fact Sheets

The Urban Institute produces dozens of timely policy papers and fact sheets that are read widely by policymakers, journalists, and those with a passion for major metropolitan areas. From this site, users will find access to well over 100 fact sheets. The topics covered include housing finance, economic insecurity, Social Security, and the labor force. Visitors can browse through a complete list of all the topics on the left-hand side of the page. The site also contains links to relevant full-length policy reports and a mix of other related links from various policy centers within the Institute. Additionally, users can take advantage of the Press Room which contains even more information on each fact sheet and topical area.


Multimedia Gallery: U.S. Census Bureau


A core feature of the Census Bureau is the wide range of statistical reports and fact sheets that they provide for general consumption. Yet, journalists and others with a penchant for demography will appreciate this online multimedia gallery site that offers up radio features, videos, and photos for general use. Within Videos, visitors can look over clips on data visualizations, Stats in Action, and a nice overview of World Statistics Day. Moving on, the Photos area contains sections such as Census History, Facts for Features, and Lifestyle that document the Bureau’s activities. Access to a range of radio features can be found within the Audio section. These features provide great information on the bureau’s latest statistical profiles and ongoing research.
