Proquest Statistical Abstract of the United States 2019: The National Data Book (Hardcover)
The Statistical Abstract of the United States has provided a statistical portrait of social, political, demographic, and economic conditions of America since 1878. This 2019 edition continues the heritage begun so long ago by the U.S. government, with the U.S. Census Bureau being the last agency to produce the compendium at government expense. Now in our seventh annual edition, Rowman & Littlefield and ProQuest carry on the proud tradition and responsibility of creating the statistical portrait of America. Librarians value the Statistical Abstract as both an answer book and a guide to statistical sources. Long-time users of the Statistical Abstract of the United States expect each new edition to carry forward much of the content from prior editions, as well as introduce new data as America continues to evolve. Our editors are committed to updating the long-standing, historical statistics as new data becomes available, as well as finding new topics to cover. This 2019 edition includes over 1,400 tables from hundreds of sources. Several new tables have been added this year on a variety of topics including: mental health treatment facilities and community health centers; Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival (DACA) recipients; opioid treatment clients and facilities; autism; the digital economy; college and university libraries; child care arrangements and expenses; workers on contract and other alternative work arrangements; trade with Canada and Mexico; Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) workplace discrimination claims; and career and technology education programs in public high schools.
