The new, Millennial, edition of Historical Statistics of the United States from Cambridge University Press is now available on-line! UCB has subscribed, and presumably anyone with a address can access it at There are five volumes, 29 pounds (in hard copy) worth of data.

One of the beauties of the Millennial Edition of HSUS is that in the on-line version, one can download data series as Excel files. What CUP has currently on-line is the Beta version--somewhat clunky and can take a rather long time to load (it is, after all, a very large resource)--but a wonderful tool for teaching and research.
