Library Journal review 5/15/2008 Reference http: //www.libraryjournal.com/article/CA6557373.html?industryid=47119
* Census Atlas of the United States: Census 2000 Special Reports. U.S. Census Bureau. 2008. 302p. maps. index. ISBN 978-1-58-769010-5. $165. REF
Data from decennial U.S. censuses prior to 2000 create a dramatic graphic portrait of a diverse and changing nation in the self-proclaimed "first comprehensive atlas of population and housing produced by the U.S. Census Bureau since the 1920s." it is also the first census for which households in Puerto Rico received the same questionnaire as those in the United States. Broader in scope than Mark T. Mattson's "Atlas of the 1990 Census" (Macmillan, 1992), this work uses scores of quantitative and qualitative choropleth, graduated-symbol, dot-location, dot-density, isoplethic, flow, and proportioned bar maps in full-color and varying scales to explore "who we are, " where we came from," and "what we do" in 14 topical chapters, among them, "Population Distribution," "Race and Hispanic Origin," and "Education." National maps predominate, with detail provided for the largest metropolitan areas and largest cities. The national maps in larger scale indicate county boundaries for reference; a further series of reference maps helps identify the counties outlined in these larger maps. Notes and a glossary round out the text. BOTTOM LINE This extraordinary demographic resource is recommended for both general readers and informed lay readers. Libraries might also want to consider Cynthia A. Brewer and Trudy Suchan's Mapping Census 2000 (Esri, 2001) as a less comprehensive but nonetheless highly useful and affordable printed-format option.
