Historical Statistics of the United States has long been the standard source for quantitative indicators of American history. It had not been revised, however, since the Bicentennial Edition in 1975, which provided data through 1970.
The vastly expanded Millennial Edition has been thoroughly revised to reflect thirty years of new data. The most recent scholarship has been brought to bear on virtually every quantifiable dimension of American history across more than 37,000 data series: population, work and welfare, economic structure and performance, governance, and international relations, all from earliest times to the present. The electronic edition of Historical Statistics is designed to allow the user practically unlimited flexibility in comparing and searching through data sets. Advanced search options and the ability to combine data sets into unique custom tables make it one of the most powerful statistical reference tools available. No historical reference is comparable!
