New Database Trial - Historical Statistics of the United States

The library now has a trial to Historical Statistics of the United States:
Historical Statistics of the United States presents the numerical history of the United States. This definitive reference work contains more than 37,000 annual time series of quantitative historical information covering virtually every quantifiable dimension of American history: population, work and welfare, economic structure and performance, governance, and international relations, all from the earliest times to the present. Each series is fully documented and placed in historical context by a recognized expert. It will be a valuable resource for libraries, students, scholars, and journalists. There is nothing comparable.
