"Forthcoming from Cambridge University Press in the spring of 2006 is an update of a landmark reference long overdue for revision. Historical Statistics of the United States: Millennial Edition, a compendium of statistics from over 1000 sources last updated in the distant 1975, has been expanded to include over 37,000 data series -- three times more than in the previous edition -- and dozens of new topics, among them slavery, American Indians, and poverty. The monumental five-volume work will be available in both print and electronic formats."
(from: Library Journal Reference Roundup.)

This thoroughly revised five-volume reference work, available both in print and electronic editions, reflects thirty years of new data and scholarship. Topics ranging from migration and health to crime and the Confederate States of America are each placed in historical context by a recognized expert in the field.
