ProQuest® Statistical Abstract of the United StatesStatistical Abstract book

The Statistical Abstract of the United States is the best-known statistical reference publication in the country, and perhaps, the world. You’ll find it behind nearly every reference desk in U.S. libraries as the authoritative go-to source Librarians value the Statistical Abstract as both an answer book (“How much corn is grown in Iowa?”) and a guide to statistical sources (“What organization has the most authoritative data on foreclosures?”). As a comprehensive collection of statistics on the social, political, and economic conditions of the United States, it is a snapshot of America and its people.

New in 2015: Over 40 new tables added on a wide variety of topics, including top 15 cancers, victims of identity theft, workers in science and engineering occupations, young adults living at home, long-term care facilities, and much, much more.
