Appeared in Choice on 2004-02-01:
Riche (director, US Census Bureau, 1994-98) and her team of data analysts offer a highly useful new title in Bernan's "County and City Extra" annual series. The data, drawn from both the long and short 2000 census forms, cover every state, county, metropolis, and city of 25,000 or more. The work has three main sections: age, ethnicity, and household structure; education, labor force, and income; migration, housing, and transportation. A brief essay summarizing major changes and trends derived from the data precedes each section. The detail provided makes the investment worthwhile. For some units (e.g., states), the compilers present as many as 250 categories of data. Colored maps illustrate the status of a given data group county by county, reinforcing the text. Appended materials include such essentials as the definitions used by the Census Bureau for race, poverty, family type, etc., which can be substantially different from the general reader's understanding. The reinforced binding will help ensure a long and useful shelf life. A valued addition to all reference collections. ^BSumming Up: Highly recommended. All levels of students and researchers. J. M.
