Product Description

The State and Metropolitan Area Data Book is the highly respected companion report to the Census Bureau's Statistical Abstract of the United States. While the Statistical Abstract provides general social, political, and economic data for the U.S. as a whole, the SMA Data Book contains similar information, but focuses on the local areas -- States, metropolitan areas, and micropolitan areas of the United States.

The Data Book is designed to serve as a statistical reference and guide to other statistical publications and sources. It includes a selection of data from statistical publications and electronic sources, both government and private. Although emphasis is primarily given to state and metropolitan area data, U.S. totals and data for component counties and central cities are also provided.

This edition of the State and Metropolitan Area Data Book features more than 1,500 data items for the United States and individual states, counties and metropolitan areas from a variety of sources. Topics include age, agriculture, births, business establishments, communications, construction, cost of living, crime, deaths, education, elections, employment, energy, finance, government, health and households.

In addition to its extensive tables, the report includes maps, source notes, and appendixes. For the readers' convenience, source notes now appear at the bottom of each table page, as well as in the source notes and explanations appendix.
