E/M 385: Public Finance: Government Sources

Government Documents

Federal, state, and local agencies collect data, publish reports, and provide information to legislators and the general public. As you use information from government websites, pay attention to whether the office representsa  partisan position (such as the president's or governor's) or whether the agency's role is to provide even-handed non-partisan information. 

When searching the web, it sometimes is a handy shortcut to add to a search or to seek out government websites. In the case of a .gov you will have to sort out whether it is from the government you are interested in.
