More About This Book

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
If you've dismissed the literature on futurism as crystal-ball gazing, here is an alternative. It compares statistics of the recent past and the present with projections for the near- and far-term future. There are 779 tables in 14 broad subject chapters, which include business, crime, education, and population. The title of each table--e.g., ``Supermarket Sales, 1980-2000''; ``Demand for Registered Nurses, 1990-2020''--is listed in the table of contents. Some 34 pages worth of indexes cover subjects and years referred to; thus, you can quickly turn to all the tables mentioning 2050 or the time period 2000-10. Sources are books, periodicals, and research reports. As in other Gale books in this series e.g., Statistical Record of Black America , LJ 1/91, the type is quite large, with only one or two tables on each page. Recommended for most libraries.-- Bruce Rosenstein, ``USA Today'' Lib., Arlington, Va.

This compilation of forecasts presents a statistical glimpse of America's future. For example, the "Big Three" American automobile manufacturers held 70 percent of the U.S. passenger-car market in 1990; it is projected that they will hold 57 percent in 2000. In 1989, 30 percent of large companies offered remedial education to employees; in 2000 65 percent will. The work contains 799 tables drawn from governmental, corporate, and private sources, arranged in 14 subject chapters, ranging from agriculture to transportation. The sources are both familiar ("Statistical Abstract of the United States", "Occupational Outlook Quarterly") and lesser-known industry publications. The introduction states that several thousand articles and reports were examined, from which the forecasts were drawn The table of contents lists each table, thus facilitating access. Each entry includes the title of the forecast; a head note (usually brief but extensive if necessary) explaining the meaning of the numbers; the clearly presented data (predominantly tables but also bar graphs, maps, and pie charts); and the source of the data. While most of the projections are at least through the 1990s, many go further into the twenty-first century, especially those on the environment (global warming is projected to 2490). For the most part, projections are national in scope, but several are by state, such as enrollment in education, or by locality, as in manufacturing employment growth. In several instances, projections are described in a narrative rather than in a table of data. The subject index provides ready access to topics, organizations, and issues. A separate index of forecasts by final year provides still further access for users Of course, the validity or accuracy of individual forecasts is debatable. Nonetheless, this accessible book will be valuable to a wide number of users, from high school students through specialized researchers.
