State Profiles 2022: The Population and Economy of Each U.S. State, Thirteenth Edition

Bernan. Dec. 2022. 566p. ed. by Hannah Anderson Krog. ISBN 9781636710747. $204. REF
The latest edition of this popular volume has been updated for 2023. While some previous releases had more major changes, this one is comprised of 16 neatly organized, easy-to-interpret data tables for each of the 50 states and the District of Columbia. The book’s content includes statistics about various population breakdowns, migration and income, health insurance and employment, school enrollment, voting, crime, and taxes. Even though this data is publicly available from government sources, having it all neatly compiled in one volume will make finding the answers to many common population questions easier for novice and experienced researchers alike. Perhaps most importantly, the impact of the COVID pandemic on the 2020 American Community Survey is addressed in both the preface and relevant tables. A detailed introductory section, state-ranking tables, and an index complete the volume.
VERDICT A solid addition to any public or academic library reference collection.
