1. Start with the Statistical Abstract of the United States. It may either answer your question or lead you to the publication, program, or agency that deals with the topic in depth.
2. See if there are major statistical agencies and browse their websites to see if you can locate the information needed.
3. Use a search engine. Try FedStats which searches only statistical tables.
