Atlas of the 1990 census by Mark T Mattson( Map )
2 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 1,400 libraries worldwide
Over the past decade much attention has been directed at the rapidly changing demographics of the United States. However, not until the completion of the 1990 census has it been clear as to how much change has occurred or what can be speculated for the future. Although the census was originally designed as a dry, strictly functional tool to determine how many seats each state is allotted in the United States House of Representatives, it has become a comprehensive source of useful and interesting information of the population and its various aspects such as sex, age, income, education, race, and ethnicity. The Atlas of the 1990 Census is the first work to bring together a remarkable range of 1990 census statistics in an appealing and visually stimulating compilation of 200 four-color maps and 80 tables. Drawing on the massive computer-based data files of the Census Bureau, Mattson has generated maps and tables for almost all quantifiable census variables in various degrees of detail - state, regions of the country, and county. Data from both the 1980 and 1990 census are provided, which affords the reader increased comprehension of the percent change maps and tables that are also included. In addition, based on previous census statistics and trends, Mattson has formulated graphic projections of many population variables. The Atlas is organized into six sections:. Population - covers such traditional census statistics as population density, population distribution and growth, components of population change, and population projections for the next century. This section also includes more specialized population variables such as gender composition, age distribution, and vital statistics, which covers data on births, deaths, infant mortality, and abortion. Households - contains information on all aspects of households such as number, size, characteristics of households, and families. The accompanying text alerts the reader to the emergence of numerous nontraditional households, householders, and families. The incipient trend toward single-parent and female headed households is also illuminated in this section. Housing - includes data on housing value, sales prices, changes in housing values, home sales, housing occupancy and vacancy, and characteristics of home buyers and new homes. This section highlights a complete examination of changes in housing values by county between 1980 and 1990. Race and Ethnicity - covers both immigration statistics and the spatial distribution of prevalent ethnic groups in the United States, such as African Americans, Hispanics, Asian Americans, and Native Americans. This section conveys the changing nature of immigration into the United States. Unlike previous years, throughout the 1980s, 86.5 percent of all new arrivals came from either Central America, Mexico, South America, or an Asian country. Economy - looks at everything from personal per capita income to how people generate income. This section explains that although personal per capita income rose throughout the 1980s, it is expected to decrease throughout both the 1990s and the next century. Education - examines the number and distribution of American school-age children for both 1990 and to the year 2000. In addition to the maps, tables, and text, the Atlas includes county and metro locator maps for all regions of the United States and a glossary that makes census terms accessible to the general reader. With its scope, detail, authority, and strong visual appeal, the Atlas of the 1990 Census stands alone as a source of information and as a research instrument. This innovative work will intrigue and enlighten everyone from the experienced geographer to the student to the general reader. It is a valuable addition to all school, public, and academic libraries
