Primary Research by Discipline: Economics

I used the fact-finder.census.gov to find my research. The author of the research is the United States Census Bureau. This research was created in 2010 when the United States government required that another be done because one is done every 10 years. This material contains demographics, age pyramids, race, household relationships, housing occupancy and housing tenure. To find this material I went to fact-finder.census.gov and searched for the US census report. Once there it had a breakdown in actual data of the many different types of categorization that the census asks about. It also has a hyperlink which dives into the an actual report itself and splits up and explains every acronym that is within the date. This would be considered primary research in my field because it is a government document and on the wisconsin library page it says that government documents are to be considered as primary research.
