Data Visualizations at Census.gov
"The Census Bureau is working to increase our use of visualization in making data available to the public, and this gallery is an early part of that effort. The first posted visualizations will pertain largely to historical population data, building on prior work done to portray historical changes in the growth and redistribution of the U.S. population. For later visualizations, the topics will expand beyond decennial census data to include the full breadth of Census Bureau data sets and subject areas, from household and family dynamics, to migration and geographic mobility, to economic indicators." There are some fascinating ways of seeing interesting data.

FRASER - Federal Reserve Archival System for Economic Research
Empirical economic research depends on economic data, especially data published by governments. Such data presents 2 difficulties for researchers. First, certain government documents can be difficult to locate. Second, published figures frequently are revised by their issuers. FRASER® is designed to address both of these issues, and contains two kinds of documents.

DATA PUBLICATIONS from U. S. government agencies such as the Bureau of Labor Statistics and the Census Bureau, and others more specialized, like the Board of Governor’s Statistical Releases.

HISTORICAL PUBLICATIONS Archival material and special collections, including Monetary Policy Hearings, Statements of the Chairman of the Board of Governors, archival material from economic policymakers, source materials from Allan Meltzer’s A History of the Federal Reserve, Vol. 1, the papers from the Brookings Institute’s Committee on the History of the Federal Reserve, and the papers of William McChesney Martin, Jr.
