The Directory of Federal Statistical Data Files is designed to provide users information on the existence, location, and acquisition of data released by the Federal Government in machine-readable form. The Directory contains descriptive information on the availability and content of statistical and related files produced by Federal agencies. The Directory reflects an effort to integrate several broad-based catalogs and directories and individual agency sources of information through a centralized source. It is the first effort to implement a continuing comprehensive program to describe Federal agency statistical data files. Some files are included in the Directory, which in a strict technical sense, are not statistical. It is the intent that the Directory facilitate the process of locating and acquiring statistical and related files which are potentially applicable to quantitative analyses and decision-making processes. Accordingly, in addition to the more traditional statistical files, such as those including summary statistics, time-series, and microdata, files described in the Directory also include geographic and other types of reference files, administrative reporting data files, and selected files containing computer software.
