The Global Dynamics of Populations: Demographic Trends

Center for Health Statistics
The NCHS, a branch of the
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, publishes a wide range of demographic reports
on this site. Of particular interest are statistics about birth and death rates, some
comparing the United States to other countries.
"The inside source
for public opinion and policy analysis," created as a resource for journalists,
offers facts (some in graphic form) for understanding various issues, as well as analyses
of public opinion survey data and of public policy news and studies. One feature
increasing this site's credibility is its "red flags" about potentially
misleading poll results. Among the social issues addressed is immigration.
