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.

The Precedents of the U.S. House of Representatives collection is actually a combination of three sequential documents: Hinds’ Precedents, Cannon’s Precedents and Deschlers’s Precedents, which cover from 1789 to the present. These documents contain selected rulings made by the Chair, and provide valuable coverage of the historical origins and evolution of House procedures.

In Hinds and Cannon, which form a set, the precedents are numbered sequentially through the volumes. In Deschler, they "have been arranged in the approximate sequential order in which the subjects covered occur or arise in the House." Each chapter is subdivided into sections, which constitutes the document level on FDsys.

The House Practice: A Guide to the Rules, Precedents and Procedures of the House (1996 - Current)
Information on the rules and selected precedents governing the House procedure. It was designed to replace the Procedure in the U.S. House of Representatives. Periodic preparation by the House parliamentarian of condensed and amplified versions of House precedents is required by Public Law 91-510.

The latest edition reflects the modern practice of the House as of the 108th Congress by integrating the long-established norms of House procedure with the innovations made possible by technological advances and by reforms and disciplines introduced by laws, resolutions, and changes in the House rules adopted at the beginning of recent Congresses.

The House Rules and Manual and the published volumes of House precedents remain the primary sources for in-depth analysis and authoritative citations. As required by law, the House Practice is a concordance or quick reference guide to those works.

History of Bills (1983 - Current)
The History of Bills lists legislative actions on bills that are reported in the Congressional Record, which has been published since 1874. In print it is part of the Congressional Record Index, the biweekly publication from the Joint Committee on Printing, but on FDsys it is a separate collection.

Each volume of the Congressional Record Index is cumulative from the beginning of each congressional session. The current year's collection is updated daily, usually the day after publication of the Congressional Record.

A typical entry includes a bill number, title, summary, names of sponsors and cosponsors, and a chronological list of actions on the bill. Each action references a Congressional Record page number and the date when the action was reported in the format "S5798 [9JN]" (page 5798 in the Senate section from the June 9 issue for that year).

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.

Congressional Record Index (1983 to current)
When Congress is in session, the Joint Committee on Printing publishes this biweekly. In print, it contains both the index proper and the History of Bills and Resolutions. The History of Bills and Resolutions is a separate collection in FDsys.

The index proper lists individuals, organizations, and topics mentioned in the Congressional Record. Members of Congress are listed alphabetically by last name in the Congressional Record Index. Also, users should include all forms of a person's first name, since Members of Congress may choose how they want their name to appear in the Congressional Record. For instance, in the 1991 Congressional Record Index , Bob Dole is listed as both“Dole, Bob” and “Dole, Robert”.

Each year of the Congressional Record Index can be searched individually, however, selecting the historical database searches all years except for the current year.

Journal of William Maclay, United States Senator from Pennsylvania (1789-1791)
William Maclay was one of the first two senators from Pennsylvania. He drew a two-year term in the allotment of term lengths for the 1st Congress and was not reelected. A man of strong, not to say acerbic, opinions, Maclay soon felt himself swimming against the stream. Within two months of the opening of the first session, he had begun to keep a diary, which he continued almost daily for the three sessions of the 1st Congress. Because Senate sessions were closed to the public until 1795, his is one of the few accounts of Senate floor activity in the early Congresses.

The edition of the diary offered here is that published in 1891, edited by Edgar S. Maclay, a descendant of the diarist. A scholarly edition, The Diary of William Maclay and Other Notes on Senate Debates, was published in 1988 by the Johns Hopkins University Press as part of the Documentary History of the First Federal Congress.

Journal of the Senate Executive Proceedings (1789-1875)
Senate Executive Proceedings Journal from the 1st-43rd Congresses (1789-1875).

In addition to its legislative journal, the Senate has maintained a separate record of its executive proceedings that relate to its functions of confirming presidential nominees and consenting to the making of treaties. It was made public in 1828, when the Senate decided to print and publish the proceedings for all the previous Congresses and thereafter to publish the journal for each session at its close.

It progressed in form from daily handwritten notes to a rewritten clean copy, which in turn was set into print. In early sessions, the entries are much shorter than those in the legislative journal and so each printed volume covers many more Congresses.

A special feature in volume 1 is a seven-page list: An Alphabetical List of the Senators of the United States From the commencement of the Government to the termination of the Nineteenth Congress.

U.S. Serial Set (select documents from 1833-1917)
A small number of documents from the 23rd-64th Congresses (1833-1917).

The United States Congressional Serial Set, commonly referred to as the Serial Set, began publication with the 15th Congress, 1st Session (1817). Documents before 1817 may be found in the American State Papers.

The Serial Set contains the House and Senate Documents and the House and Senate Reports. The reports are usually from congressional committees dealing with proposed legislation and issues under investigation. The documents include all other papers ordered printed by the House or Senate. Documents cover a wide variety of topics and may include reports of executive departments and independent organizations, reports of special investigations made for Congress, and annual reports of non-governmental organizations. During the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, executive-branch materials were also published in the Serial Set.

American State Papers (1789-1817)
The American State Papers, comprising a total of thirty-eight physical volumes, contain the legislative and executive documents of Congress during the period 1789 to 1838. The collection includes documents that cover the critical historical gap from 1789 to the printing of the first volume of the U.S. Serial Set in 1817. The books are arranged into ten topical classes or series.

The compilation, printing, and distribution of the Papers took place from 1831 to 1861 and the thirty-eight volumes contain 6,278 documents. Not all of the classes contain documents from the entire 1789-1838 period. Every volume contains an index and all but one has a table of contents, both with machine-searchable transcriptions.

Farrand's Records or The Records of the Federal Convention of 1787
Published in 1911, Farrand's work gathered the documentary records of the Constitutional Convention into four volumes--three of which are included in this online collection--containing the materials necessary to study the workings of the Constitutional Convention. At the close of the convention, the secretary, William Jackson, delivered all the materials to the president of the convention, George Washington, who turned these papers over to the Department of State in 1796. In 1818, Congress ordered that the records be printed, which was done in 1819.

Farrand's Records remains the best source for discussions of the Constitutional Convention. The notes taken at that time by James Madison, and later revised by him, form the largest single block of material other than the official proceedings. The three volumes also includes notes and letters by many other participants, as well as the various constitutional plans proposed during the convention.
