Overview

Each state-by-state volume in this series provides at-a-glance detailed demographic and statistical data on every populated place in the state, along with easy-to-use comparative rankings. Each Demographic Profile gives the user an easy-to-read snapshot of every single place and county in the state, from the biggest metropolis to the smallest unincorporated hamlet.

Each profile offers data on History, Geography, Climate, Population, Vital Statistics, Economy, Income, Taxes, Education, Housing, Health & Environment, Public Safety and more.

The richness of each profile is astounding in its depth, from history to weather, all packed in an easy-to-navigate, compact format. Next, each volume provides School District Data with a snapshot profile of each district serving 1,500 or more students. Each district profile includes contact information along with grades served, the numbers of students, teachers and schools, student/teacher ratios, drop out rates, ethnicity, gender and diploma recipients by race and district expenditures per student. Plus, Hispanic, Asian & Ancestry Group Statistics along with Detailed Weather Data are included to bring even more state data into this remarkable volume.

Each volume also contains a section on Comparative Ranking Charts that allow the user to quickly and easily see how the 100 largest cities compare to one another in many different categories. Each of 22 different data points has its own two-page spread with the cities listed in alpha order so researchers can easily compare and rank cities. Statistics ranked in this section include Income, Unemployment, Population Characteristics, Taxes, Cost of Living, Education, Health Care, Public Safety and more.
