Michigan Statistical Abstract 1996

The most comprehensive statistical information on the State of Michigan


Under the direction of the Michigan Department of Labor, the Michigan Employment Security Commission offers the 21st edition of the Michigan Statistical Abstract, last published in 1986/1987. The carefully collated material has been formatted into a very readable volume and is a tremendously useful resource for a variety of information seekers throughout the state. For people outside Michigan, it provides in one handy volume a wealth of information which is not readily available at their own local libraries.

The Michigan Statistical Abstract provides demographic, economic, agricultural, educational, and other useful information about the state in tabular form. It has been updated to include information not included in previous editions, for example, the number of working women. Population characteristics include comparisons of the contemporary with historical data on populations extending back to 1810. The health and vital statistics section includes detailed information on a wide range of topics, including Michigan abortion rates, tobacco use, and occupational injury.

The Abstract is a valuable reference tool for scholars, businesses, entrepreneurs, and job seekers. It is an excellent resource for state, county, and local statistical information. There is no other work that combines so much useful information on the state, its population, its businesses, and its economic condition.
