CQ's State Fact Finder 2004 covers the social, political, and economic currents and trends in the states-which affect all citizens and state and local governments in times like these. CQ's State Fact Finder 2004 has new tables and updated annual statistics. New tables covering state population and demographics, alternative fuel vehicles, homeland security spending, prescription drug spending, and more make this 10th edition the most comprehensive ever. Its in-depth statistical content, presented in a consistent and easy-to-use format, goes beyond the standard number reports by government agencies. "Subject Rankings" and "State Rankings" help students and researchers find specific data by topic or by state, depending on their needs. The "Subject Rankings" section provides over 250 tables, organized into 13 topical chapters. An analytical summary noting issues and trends in the tables begins each chapter; and every table provides data and rankings for all 50 states plus the District of Columbia.
Topical chapters include: Technology, Government, Taxes, Population, Federal Impacts, Crime/Law Enforcement, Health, Revenues and Finances, Welfare, Economies, Education, Transportation, and Geography. A state profile section summarizes each individual state's ranking so readers can see at a glance their state's standing on all the indicators in the book. An introductory essays by the author guide readers to the most fruitful use of this data and a thorough index allows for quick research.
