Places, Towns and Townships brings data for all of the nation's cities, towns, townships, villages, and census-designated places into one convenient source. Whether researchers are looking for information on a city with a population in the millions or on a small town with only two residents, they can find it in Places, Towns and Townships. Much of the information in this volume won't be updated for at least several years, making it an invaluable reference that will be used repeatedly over the years ahead. Information is presented in a series of tables, making it simple for users to find the information they need. Table A provides population and housing data for all places, regardless of size. Data from Census 2000 is shown along with percentages of change since 1990. Table B covers places with a population of 10,000 or more. Topics in this section include land area, population, crime, construction, and local government finances. In this edition, the information in Table B has been increased to include data on housing units, households, and group quarters. Table C provides information on places with a population of 2,500 or more. This year's edition provides even more information in this table, including data on manufactures, retail trade, health care and social assistance, and professional, scientific, and technical services.Deirdre A.
