The Statistical Abstract of the United States has provided a statistical portrait of social, political, demographic, and economic conditions of America since 1878. This 2020 edition continues the heritage begun so long ago by the U.S. government, with the U.S. Census Bureau being the last agency to produce the compendium at government expense. Now in our eighth annual edition, Rowman & Littlefield and ProQuest carry on the proud tradition and responsibility of creating the statistical portrait of America. Librarians value the Statistical Abstract as both an answer book and a guide to statistical sources. It is the best-known statistical reference publication in the country. As a comprehensive collection of statistics, it is a snapshot of America and its people. Our editors are committed to updating the long-standing, historical statistics as new data becomes available, as well as finding new topics to cover. This 2020 edition includes over 1,400 tables from hundreds of sources. Several new tables have been added this year on a variety of topics including: -Persons by Whether Voting on Election Day or Utilizing Alternative Early Voting: 1996 to 2016 -Firearm Possession and Use Among Prisoners During Offense That Led to Imprisonment by Type of Controlling Offense: 2016 -Drug Overdose Deaths and Age-adjusted Death Rates Involving Opioids, Benzodiazepines, and Stimulants by Drug -Drug Overdose Death Rates by Sex, Age, and Race/Ethnicity -Passengers Screened and Firearms Discovered at TSA Checkpoints: 2015 to 2018 -SAT Scores and Characteristics of College-Bound Seniors: 2017 -Estimated Unauthorized Immigrants (Illegal Aliens) by Selected Country of Birth and State: 2000 to 2015 -Nonfatal Injury and Poisoning Episodes by Cause, Sex, and Age: 2017 -Farmers by Selected Producer Characteristics: 2017 -Outdoor Recreation Sector Gross Output by Activity -Counselors, Psychologists, and Social Workers in Public Schools -Associate's Degrees by Field of Study and Sex -Education Certificates Awarded by Field of Study and Sex -Disability Prevalence Among Adults Age 18 and Over by Type of Disability -Physician Use of Electronic Medical or Health Record System by Physician Specialty.
