Choice Review

The New Strategist editors offer gender-based demographic statistics in a variety of areas, including attitudes and behavior, education, health, income, labor, living arrangements, population, spending, and wealth. The data are taken from US government sources, such as the Census Bureau and the National Center for Health Statistics, and from the University of Chicago's National Opinion Research Center. Most of the data can be found either on US government Web sites, or in Statistical Abstract of the United States (119th ed., 1999), but they are provided in a concise, highly accessible format. Most tables offer percentage calculations, and brief introductions summarize the main trends represented by the numbers. Each chart includes the source for its data, with URL if applicable. Other features include a bibliography of Web and print sources, and a glossary of demographic terms. One especially useful section is "For More Information," which offers a list of phone numbers of US government agencies and individual subject specialists by topic. General users, especially business and marketing specialists, will find this volume extremely valuable. Recommended for all levels. D. Durant; East Carolina University
