Welcome to the fourth edition of Profiles of New York State - Facts, Figures & Statistics for 2,365 Populated Places in New York. As with the other titles in our State Profiles series, we built this work using content from the award-winning Profiles of America - a 4-volume compilation of data on more than 42,000 places in the United States. We have updated and included the New York chapter from Profiles of America, and added entire fresh chapters of demographic information and ranking sections, so that Profiles of New York State is the most comprehensive portrait of the state of New York ever published.
This fourth edition provides data on all populated communities and counties in the state of New York for which the US Census provides individual statistics. It includes seven major sections that cover everything from Education to Ethnic Backgrounds to Climate. All sections include Comparative Statistics or Rankings, and full-color Maps at the back of the book provide valuable information in a quickly processed, visual format.
