As someone who worked for 5 years in the reference section at a university library here are some GOOD non-partisan information sources that are free that we used all the time at the library to give kids a start on supplying high quality facts for their term papers. I'm just so sick of seeing random websites from all over the internet being used for "facts" to support claims. Here is a list of FREE sites with HIGH QUALITY INFO that anyone who is caught in a heated political debate should glance over for information and facts. http://www.fedstats.gov *best place to start http://www.cbo.gov/ http://www.bea.gov/ http://www.bls.gov/ http://www.census.gov/ https://www.cia.gov/library/publications/the-world-factbook/index.html http://www.cdc.gov/ http://www.archives.gov http://www.loc.gov http://www.sec.gov http://www.nber.org/ http://www.oecd.org/home/0,2987,en_2649_201185_1_1_1_1_1,00.html http://www.nationmaster.com/index.php *best place to start http://www.who.int/en/ http://www.un.org/english/ http://www.worldbank.org/ http://portal.unesco.org/en/ev.php-URL_ID=29008&URL_DO=DO_TOPIC&URL_SECTION=201.html http://www.unicef.org/ http://content.nejm.org/ (some free text available) http://jama.ama-assn.org/current.dtl (some free text) http://www.factcheck.org http://www.digitalhistory.uh.edu/# http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Main_Page (collection of text books. yes it can be edited, but most of the info is still pretty good).
