The Statistical Abstract of the United States has provided a statistical portrait of social, political, demographic, and economic conditions of America since 1878. This 2023 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 eleventh annual edition, Rowman & Littlefield and ProQuest carry on the proud tradition and responsibility of creating the statistical portrait of America.
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 become available, as well as researching new topics to cover.
This 2023 Edition contains nearly 40 new tables on topics including individual income taxes, IRS audits, school shootings, COVID-19 related changes to school instruction, employment of undergraduate students, energy distribution system reliability, air pollution by metropolitan statistical area, COVID-19 deaths, disability rates, health status and access to health care, abortions, space-related industries employment, nonimmigrant admissions, Puerto Rico GDP and trade, foreign military sales, and federal agriculture subsidies.
