Abstract (Document Summary)

Local Stats is a rich database providing hard-to-find, vetted, and cleaned data measures about US counties, cities, and metropolitan statistical areas across a broad range of topics in the social sciences, says Baldwin. What sets Local Stats apart from similar offerings from SAGE's competitors, according to Baldwin, is the "rigorous data cleaning process" that all datasets SAGE releases must go through.
