This is a comprehensive collection of all publications with statistical content from the U. S. government, and UBC Library's holdings date from 1974 through 2010.
Unless you have a complete citation to a document in the collection, you should begin your research by consulting the companion print index, located in Koerner Library (call number ZHA214 .A447). Look for the accession number printed at the end of each entry. The microfiche collection is organized by publication year and accession number so you will need to know both numbers in order to retrieve the correct microform.
ASI indexing is also online, along with an increasing number of online tables and links to online publications, through the subscription database Proquest Statistical Insight.
There is a guide to the 1980 Census Publications (call no.: HA37.U55 G85 1986) and a guide to the 1990 Census Publications (call no.: HA37.U55 G853 1994). These contain detailed abstracts and indexes derived from the American Statistics Index.
