After more than 25 years of operation, STAT-USA closed its doors. The world of access to government information evolved to the point that STAT-USA’s business model, as a fee for service office, was no longer viable.
In its early years, STAT-USA was on the progressive edge of government data delivery. Its mandate from Congress, to serve as a central collection and delivery mechanism for economic and trade information from all the federal agencies, was a much-needed innovation. Since then, the Internet and information technology in general have grown and changed at dazzling speed. Information sharing, data tools, and social media have become intrinsic parts of American life.
STAT-USA/Internet (which includes all State of the Nation and GLOBUS & NTDB databases) ceased September 30, 2010.
