  • About the Author

A detailed look at Census Bureau economic statistics leads off this book illuminating features of which many librarians are not aware. The following chapter provides an insider's view of the production of state statistical information. The bibliographies have been expanded from the conference presentations providing more details on such topics as demographics and marketing, economic forecasts, industry statistics, financial statistics, trade statistics, and labor, employment, and wages.

While no bibliography of this type can claim to be complete, Success by the Numbers provides thorough coverage of major business statistical resources while describing their unique and unusual features.
