County and City Extra, Special Historical Edition brings together census population data from the earliest days of our nation and some more recent historical data from other federal statistical agencies. For more than 20 years, the County and City Extra series has provided annual up-to-date statistical information for every state, county, metropolitan area, and congressional district, as well as all cities with populations of 25,000 or more. This historical edition provides key data from all of the censuses from 1790 through 2010. Part A provides an overview with selected national data for all available years from the Census Bureau, the Bureau of Labor Statistics, and the Bureau of Economic Analysis Part B includes a similar selection of data for the 50 states and the District of Columbia. Part C shows the population of each county from the date of its origins through the 2010 census. Detailed information about the origins of all states and counties is included Part D presents the largest cities for each of the 23 censuses between 1790 and 2010, as well as a table showing the historical populations of all cities with populations of 100,000 or more in 2010. In addition to Parts A, B, C, and D, a section titled "The United States through the Decades" is included highlighting important events in the United States in each decade from 1790 to 2010. This edition also includes several figures on topics such as population growth through the decades, foreign-born residents, fastest-growing counties from 1790 to 2010, life expectancy through the years, and per capita income. In 1790, Virginia was the most populous state with over 800,000 residents (including territories that are now West Virginia and Kentucky) Between the first Census and the Civil War, the U.S population grew by more than 30 percent each decade In 1870, only 3 percent of U.S. residents were 65 years old and over. With increased life expectancy and lower birth rates, the proportion had grown to 13 percent by 2010. The 1900 census showed that Wyoming, Montana, and Nevada had 150 men for every 100 women. In 2010, the ratio was 96.7 men for every 100 women at the national level. Mississippi had the lowest per-capita income throughout the 80-year time period between 1930 and 2010. From 1910 to 1920, Los Angeles experienced growth from Hollywood’s dominance in the film industry. Its population increased by 81 percent that decade and its land area more than tripled.

DIE GEIER VOM LINCOLN COUNTY Western-Roman von Alfred Bekker Der Umfang dieses Buchs entspricht 96 Taschenbuchseiten. "Du spielst falsch, Hombre!" Der Blick des Einäugigen war eisig. Noch hatte er die Rechte auf dem Tisch und nicht am tiefgeschnallten Revolverholster. Rechts und links von ihm saßen zwei seiner Kumpane, mit denen zusammen er am Mittag aus der Postkutsche gestiegen war. Sie trugen - ebenso wie der Einäugige - dunkle, etwas abgeschabte Anzüge. Und Revolver. Gunslinger waren sie, Männer die sich für ein paar Dollars von jedem anheuern ließen, der bereit war, für ihre Dienste zu bezahlen. Der Einäugige warf die Karten auf den Tisch. Er spuckte geräuschvoll aus. Der vierte Mann in der Spielrunde erbleichte. Es handelte sich um Saul Jackson, einen einfachen Cowboy aus der Gegend. Jackson kniff die Augen zusammen. "Ich habe nicht falsch gespielt!" behauptete er. "Doch, du hast!" widersprach der Einäugige. Seine Stimme klirrte wie Eis. Unter dem Pseudonym NEAL CHADWICK schreibt der Schriftsteller ALFRED BEKKER. Seine Romane um DAS REICH DER ELBEN, die GORIAN-Trilogie und die DRACHENERDE-SAGA machten ihn einem großen Publikum bekannt. Er schrieb für junge Leser die Fantasy-Zyklen ELBENKINDER, DIE WILDEN ORKS, ZWERGENKINDER und ELVANY sowie historische Abenteuer wie DER GEHEIMNISVOLLE MÖNCH, LEONARDOS DRACHEN, TUTENCHAMUN UND DIE FALSCHE MUMIE und andere. In seinem Kriminalroman DER TEUFEL AUS MÜNSTER machte er mit dem Elbenkrieger Branagorn eine Hauptfigur seiner Fantasy-Romane zum Ermittler in einem höchst irdischen Mordfall. Im Dezember 2012 erscheint mit DER SOHN DER HALBLINGE sein nächster großer Fantasy-Epos bei Blanvalet.

Millennials in America 2017

This publication provides a wide range of characteristics profiling the demographic, social, and economic status of the Millennial generation. While the Baby Boom generation occupies much of our social and political dialogue, the Millennial generation is actually a larger generation. As the Boomers age, their numbers will decrease while the Millennials will be the driving social and political force in the coming decades. Millennials in America focuses on the those born between 1982–2001. Millennials in America is an invaluable source for helping people understand what the census data tells us about who we are, what we do, and where we live. Benefits of this publication include: It will fill an information gap due to the difficulty in extracting comparative data from the Census Bureau's American FactFinder dissemination system. Users will have comparative data in a single reference volume. It will eliminate the need for the data user to understand and manipulate detailed census data files and consolidate disparate tables in AFF. This publication utilizes the PUMS data which is the ONLY source of data that can be used to define precise age ranges for the Millennial generation. The age detail available for census summary data simply aren’t adequate for defining the Millennials and therefore prohibit compilation of characteristics specific to this important generation. Features of this publication include: Detailed data on 11 subject areas including race, educational attainment, field of study, income, mobility status, employment status, housing, and more Each subject area includes data for the United States, the 50 states and the District of Columbia, 622 counties, 331 cities, 381 metropolitan areas and 34 micropolitan areas. Each part is preceded by highlights, maps, and figures illustrating how areas diverge from the national norm as well as differences among areas.

In a time of changing technology and cultural shifts, it is difficult to measure some aspects of the workforce. Education and the American Workforce brings together a comprehensive collection of employment and education information from federal statistical agencies. The Census Bureau is the leading source of quality data about the nation's people and economy. The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) is the principal federal agency responsible for measuring labor market activity, working conditions, and price changes in the economy. Together, these agencies produce a wealth of information about the American workforce. This book includes information about the jobs that people hold, the occupations that they pursue, the industries where they work, and the education levels that people have attained. In addition to tables, each section also includes relevant figures and highlights of notable data. Some examples of interesting data found inside Education and the American Workforce include: With no formal educational requirement and a median salary of $22,680, 4.5 million people are employed as retail salespersons, the most of any single occupation. Cashiers and food preparation/serving workers account for another 3.5 million each. There are 2.9 million registered nurses, the most numerous of occupations that require a bachelor’s degree. The biggest numeric decline is expected for Postal Service mail carriers, dropping by about 78,000 in ten years. When combined with other Postal Service occupations—such as clerks, sorters, postmasters, and others—a decline of 140,000 jobs is expected for the Postal Service. Among the 75 largest counties, Bronx County, NY had the highest number of residents age 25 and over with less than a high school diploma at 29.4 percent while Montgomery County, PA had the lowest percentage at 6.2 percent. Meanwhile, New York County, NY and Fairfax County, VA had the highest percentage of residents with a bachelor’s degree or higher at 59.9 percent followed by Montgomery County, MD at 57.9 percent among the 75 largest counties. Nationally, between 2011 and 2015, 29.8 percent of the population had a bachelor’s degree or higher.

Virtuos erzählt die Schriftstellerin C.E. Morgan von den Menschen, die das Erbe der amerikanischen Geschichte in sich tragen, und erschafft damit ein an Faulkner erinnerndes, großes modernes Epos. Henry Forge und seine Tochter Henrietta haben einen Traum: Sie wollen das beste Rennpferd aller Zeiten züchten. Die Familie Forge gehört zu den ältesten und einflussreichsten Pferdezüchterdynastien von Kentucky, ihr Vollblut Hellsmouth bringt exzellente Vorraussetzungen mit. Doch als Allmon Shaughnessy auf der Farm anheuert, ein ehrgeiziger junger Schwarzer, und sich Henrietta in ihn verliebt, werden Kräfte freigesetzt, die seit Jahrhunderten das Leben in den Südstaaten bestimmt haben und immer noch machtvoll sind. Angst, Vorurteile und sexuelles Verlangen, Rassismus und Wut, die Kluft zwischen Arm und Reich, Unterdrückung, ja Gewalt sind die ständigen Begleiter dieses Lebens im Schatten der Sklaverei, die untrennbar verbunden ist mit der amerikanischen Geschichte.
