Overview

On April 1, 2011, the Official 2010 U.S. Census Report will be released. On that same day, The Unofficial U.S. Census will shed light (and a bit of laughter) on all the other facts that Americans are itching to know about our country and each other.

Les Krantz and Chris Smith have collected facts from a variety of sources, compiling a fascinating and insightful look into America—an up-to-date demographic profile that will include what the government forgot to ask us, such as who we sleep with, what we ingest, what we own, what we drive, when we have sex, what we tattoo on our bodies, and much more! With clever photos and captions, the book includes fifty enlightening and fun chapters covering all aspects of American life, including sporting activities, sex, edibles, education, religious beliefs, family profiles, criminal activities, body piercing, dating, driving, and net worth. The Unofficial U.S. Census is an engaging portrait of America, jammed with facts and fun—warts and all!

Editorial Reviews

The 2010 United States Census gave us all essential information about population trends in individual cities, towns, and states, but it left giant chasms in topics much more likely to hold our attention: How many of us have tattoos or body piercings? How often do we have sex and with whom? Do we fake orgasms? Are we Americans good tippers? How many of us really embrace the paranormal? Do we cheat on tests? How often do we text? How do we amuse ourselves and what do read? This entertaining compendium can make you the most interesting person at any social gathering.
