Annual statistics on U.S. public libraries are available from the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES). Data are collected by state library agencies and compiled by NCES with the support of the U.S. Census Bureau's Division of Governments and the U.S. National Commission on Libraries and Information Science (NCLIS). The annual NCES report on U.S. public libraries provides data for the nation, each of the 50 states and the District of Columbia, and each of 11 population ranges. Major data categories include: library name and address, outlets, staffing, income and expenditures, collections, Internet computers, library visits, circulation, reference questions, interlibrary loan, and use of electronic services.
