The Statistical Abstract of the United States is one of the most reliable and popular statistical references in existence. The Bernan Press Library Edition presents the complete, official content of the Statistical Abstract in an easily readable format-25 percent larger type than in the U.S. government edition-and with a sturdy binding designed to withstand heavy use in libraries. HURRY! LAST CHANCE!! Due to budget cutbacks, the U.S. Census Bureau has decided to end the Statistical Abstract of the United States with the 2012 edition. Thus, this could be your last chance to own a copy of this invaluable reference. The book contains detailed tables on population, health, education, geography, the environment, elections, finances, employment, national defense and veterans affairs, income, communications, law, energy, science, business, transportation, agriculture, construction, and housing. Comparative international statistics are furnished, along with appendixes and maps.
Special features include guides to tabular presentation, sources of statistics, a guide to state statistical abstracts, a guide to foreign statistical abstracts, figures that call attention to noteworthy trends in the data, telephone and Internet contacts for several government agencies, metropolitan area concepts and components, and a subject index. The 2012 Edition contains several new tables including: *Women Who Had a Child in the Last Year by Living Arrangement, Educational Attainment Age, and Educational Attainment: 2010 *Public Elementary and Secondary Schools by School Type, Racial/Ethnic Concentration of Students, and Eligibility of Students for Free or Reduced-Price Lunch: 2000 and 2008 *Sexual Identity Among Men and Women: 2006 to 2008 *National Health Expenditures, by Sponsor: 1987 to 2009 *Residence and Migration of College Freshmen by State: 2008 *U.S. Courts of Appeals-Nature of Suit or Offense in Cases Arising from the U.S.
