Editorial Reviews

Zom Zoms
This valuable source updates the indispensable government publication, "Historical Statistics of the United States, Colonial Times to 1970". Combining data tables and text, it provides a foundation for examining our "nation's growth-revealing historical patterns and principal changes" for 23 selected areas, including health, agriculture, housing, energy, finance, and government. "Except in cases where a reader is seeking highly specialized data, "Datapedia" will serve as a convenient and complete statistical profile of the U.S. Wisely, the author has followed the pattern established in "Historical Statistics", maintaining the chapter divisions and table numbers. Each data set has a unique letter and number, and these access points are consistent between "Datapedia" and its predecessor. With this feature, researchers will find it easy to cross-reference and compare data. For example, if one sees in "Datapedia" that in 1921 there were 55,260 miles of oil pipeline in operation, one need only carry the chapter letter and set number into "Historical Statistics" to verify the figure in the earlier source. This consistency of arrangement adds tremendously to "Datapedia"`s value. Anyone who is familiar with its venerable cousin will be able to use it efficiently right from the start For the period up to 1970, "Datapedia" is based entirely on "Historical Statistics". For 1970-90, it is based on the annual "Statistical Abstract of the United States". Where possible, as with demographics, projections are extended to the year 2010. The author has included a five-page list that groups sources by the chapters they support. Readers may assume that all sources are from the U.S. government unless otherwise indicated (e.g., National Catholic Education Association, American Medical Association, Metropolitan Life Insurance Company) With large type and cranberry-colored lines to define the charts, the publisher has produced a work that is much easier on the eyes than "Historical Statistics". Also, each chapter begins with a "Highlights" section that lists succinctly points of information relevant to the chapter topic. For example, highlights for the "Forestry and Fisheries" chapter include summary statements about the growth of the aquaculture industry and the number of people employed in the timber industry As with many statistical sources, this compilation would be great to have on disk. However, there is no indication that a disk version is forthcoming, and the print version is fairly priced at $90. "Datapedia" is a highly recommended purchase for all medium to large public libraries and for all academic libraries.
