The new fourth edition of Datapedia boasts expanded coverage on a wide range of topics (see the Table of Contents link below). Data series in Datapedia cover the history of the United States from 1789 to 2006 and include select data projections through 2050. Also included are highlights of important milestones found in each chapter including Unauthorized Immigration, Hurricane Katrina, Alternative Living Arrangements, Mine Safety, and more!

This is the first update to this essential reference in over three years, and its coverage is greatly expanded and enhanced.

Reviews and Recommendations

"The third edition (2nd ed., 1994) builds on and supplements the US Census Bureau's Historical Statistics of the United States from Colonial Times to 1970 (1975). After 1970, Kurian uses the data gathered in the annual Statistical Abstract of the United States through the 123rd ed. (2004). The current edition covers the period 1789-2003, with projections through 2050, if available. The work has 31 divisions containing 281 tables of data. Where applicable, tables reference the time series used by the Census Bureau. Each section begins with a brief overview that gives highlights for the section in general and for each table. Tables are well constructed, easy to read, sourced, and footnoted. Datapedia is convenient to use, although the index lacks cross-references and has entry for all states except (for some reason) Ohio. Useful for all libraries, but where feasible, libraries should retain the annual volumes of Statistical Abstract to provide additional information for serious readers. Summing Up: Highly recommended. All collections."
