Almanac of American Demographics

Those facts and many, many more can be found in the more than 500 pages of demographic rankings of American cities and towns; in fact, more than 13,000 American cities and towns are listed within this book. The demographic topics and data come from the United States' Census Bureau and include age, race, income, employment, education, language, ancestry, population growth, marital status, place of birth, home values and many others. The sections of the book include rankings of the fifty states, rankings of cities and towns nationally and rankings of places for each individual state.

For those of you that love almanacs and other information packed books this book is a must have. I have never been able to find the information that is in this book anywhere else. The book is basically a big book of lists and rankings of places by many demographic measures. The best part is that every state has its own chapter which makes comparison of states easy. My favorite parts are the rankings of the sixty or so largest cities by all of the demographic measures and the rankings of states and places by ancestry groups (I've never seen information like that anywhere before).
