Government Sources

Many national, regional and local governments offer a full range of helpful materials including information on consumer, domestic business, and international markets. For those operating in the United States, information available through the U.S. Government is staggering. The U.S. Government is a behemoth with agencies and offices found in more nooks and crannies than one could ever imagine and the uninitiated can spend hours on end trying to find relevant information. But once found and digested the reports are often very good.

Because government sites can be overwhelming to sift through, research seekers may find their time is better spent using one of several government portal sites that tend to organize and present material in a more search friendly manner.
