Overview

Now in its third century of publication, The World Almanac remains the one source people turn to when they need comprehensive and reliable information on just about any subject imaginable. Faster and easier to use than the Internet and other on-line sources, it's no wonder The World Almanac is the one almanac found in homes, libraries, schools, businesses, and media outlets.

Completely updated from first page to last, and with more information than ever before, The World Almanac 2002 continues the 134-year tradition of providing the most information on the most topics, including:

  • Detailed results and analysis of the 2000 Census
  • Expanded information in some of The World Almanac's most turned-to sections: sports, noted personalities, consumer information, and international news and information
  • The Year in Pictures: Two full-color photo sections with highlights of the most dramatic events of the year
  • Plus, all the information people need on hundreds of other topics, including: arts and entertainment, awards, U.S. cities and states, nations of the world, sports, the environment, vital statistics, crime, employment, lifestyles, education, travel, science and technology, astronomy, health and nutrition, the economy and business, and much more

The World Almanac 2002 is also available in a special deluxe, large format hardcover edition. With all the same great information as the regular edition, it features an expanded 7" X 10" page format; larger, easier-to-read type; deluxe 50 lb. text stock; a colorful protective dust jacket; and a deluxe hardcover binding. It's the perfect gift for the fact fanatic on everyone's holiday list.
