The U.S. Census Bureau is known for its diverse set of publications that speak to the demographic conditions that exist throughout different regions of the country. Many of these publications are used by policy specialists, planners, and other such types. The Bureau also does a rather fine job providing press releases for news organizations, independent journalists, and the general public. One set of these press releases can be found on this special section of their main website. These "Facts for Features" provide interesting statistics directly related to such holidays as Grandparents Day, Veterans Day and certain themes, such as Hispanic heritage, African-American history, and baby boomers. Visitors to the site can browse through archives of the press releases all the way back to the year 2000.
