Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Kathleen and Scott Morgan have compiled books of state and city rankings for some 20 years. The 2008 edition of their resource text translates complicated and often convoluted statistics to allow meaningful comparisons of state quality of life information. Alphabetically organized by category, it provides researchers, librarians, community leaders, and concerned citizens with 569 tables of state-by-state comparisons in the areas of agriculture, crime and law enforcement, defense, economy, education, employment and labor, energy and environment, geography, federal government finances, state and local government finances, health, households and housing, population, social welfare, and transportation. On each page, the data is presented in two side-by-side tables, one presenting the data in alphabetical order, the other in rank order, so that readers can easily locate data for a particular state and quickly learn where the state ranks among others.
