Susan B. Carter and Richard Sutch: Their work on Historical Stats wins honorsHistorians in the News
“Historical Statistics of the United States: Earlier Times to the Present, Millennial Edition” also was named one of the 2007 Outstanding Reference Sources for small and medium-sized libraries by the Reference and User Services Association, a division of the American Library Association; an ALA Booklist Editor’s Choice, and the Library Journal’s Best of Reference in 2006.
The five-volume set, published by Cambridge University Press, is the standard source for statistics about American history, ranging from population and voting patterns to energy, abortions and Vietnam veterans. The update expands the previous edition, published by the Census Bureau in 1975, from two to five volumes.
More than 80 scholars contributed to the 10-year project, helping select, edit and document the data, write introductory essays and analyze the material.
“Historical Statistics” will be listed in the May 2007 issue of “American Libraries.”
