Using raw data from the 2000 census, this reference work pulls together comparative statistics on the ethnic makeup of 4,206 municipalities in the U.S. with populations of over 10,000. Statistics were drawn from three different sections of the census: "Race," "Hispanic Origin," and "Ancestry." Content is divided into two sections: statistics by place and comparative rankings. "Section One: City-by-City Listings" lists the places by state and then alphabetically, with their population and percent of the total population for each ethnic background. In "Section Two: Comparative Ranking Tables," the top 150 places for each racial and ethnic category are listed by name, by population number, and by population percentage. Using this easy-to-navigate section, users can immediately find out which place has the highest and lowest percentage of each ancestry--of the top 150 places with people reporting Swedish ancestry, Jamestown, New York, has the highest percentage, and Columbine, Colorado, has the lowest. The index provides an alphabetical listing of every place that is included.
This compilation will serve a wide range of research requests for population characteristics. Because it reports data on more than 200 different ethnic and racial categories, it offers much more detail than other sources, such as the publisher's Profiles of America (2d ed, 2003). A companion CD-ROM, which has data for 33,150 places regardless of total population size, is available on request for purchasers of the volume. RBB
