Facts & Figures


This page is still under construction.  In the meantime, take a look at this page from the National Bureau for Economic Research that shows the business cycle lengths since 1854.  Two other good resources are the Statistical Abstract of the United States and the Historical United States Census Data Browser.  Also be sure to check out my links page, which has lists of other Depression-related information elsewhere on the web.


For convenience, as data is added to this page, it will be combined into an Excel 97 spreadsheet.  For those of you who do not have Excel 97, click here for a viewer for use with Windows 95/98/NT.
