The census has been providing valuable information to government and industry since it first began in the 1700s. In this book, Russell O. Wright takes a new look at census data from 1900 through 1990-a look that encompasses not just how many people were living in which city at what time, but what those numbers say about the past, present, and future of the United States. By compiling and comparing population data for each region, state, and major city within the U.S., Wright provides unique insight into the geographic, economic, social, and political factors that have shaped the country. He compares the growth of the states and the largest cities to the overall growth of the nation, to see which grew slower, and by how much. He also uses the data to project what will happen-statistically and politically-through the year 2050. Throughout the book, information is presented in easy-to-read charts and tables which are accompanied by concise explanatory materials. Data are arranged by region, state and city for quick access. States and cities are also shown in ranked order, enabling the researcher to find data based on relative population.
Russell O. Wright has published statistical books on a variety of subjects, including baseball and presidential elections.
