Skip to comments.Looking for sites useful for research
Posted on 10/08/2012 7:28:53 PM PDT by Optimus Prime
Could someone help me out, please? I'm hoping to find a couple good reference sites as useful tools for the future. I'd like to be able to research the following:
1) How much revenue the US government received on a particular year.
2) What the deficit/surplus was per month or year.
3) How much was the National Debt on a particular year.
So could someone please point me to any such sites? I'd appreciate it very much. Thank you.
It always amazes me why someone would post simple questions on FR that could easily be done the same via Google, Bing or any other search engines?
World Almanac and Book of Facts...my first copy was in my 8th Grade Civics class - 1972 edition and still have a copy from the 80s somewhere around the house.
...he asked for a good source...*smiles*...MSNBC,CNN,YAHOO...eh,not so good
that’s what the GAO is all about...or try OMB
Have you tried research.com?
That is weird, I didn’t realize. Research.net has a redirect as well.

That has a search function for the nat debt on different dates.
polidiotic.com...gives you national debt by year bsince Washington....the debt in 1836 was $3,780.00.
It always amazes me when people respond to simple questions when they have nothing to contribute and assume that the person asking the question hasn’t already used a search engine to find what he was looking for when they most likely have and are now asking the question because they were unsatisfied with the results.
I found a website the other day which gave you the deficit month by month and you could make excel tables out of the data, but for the life of me I can’t seem to find it again. I really wish I’d bookmarked it when I had the chance.
The Treasury Department
National Bureau of Economic Research
You can toss any of these at the libs. It shuts them down immediately.
go back to your previous post....you may run across something that got you there...
