Library Journal Review

Touted as the "most comprehensive portrait.of the state of Texas," this guide lacks photographs but provides a useful profile of the state via six major variables. The volume presents the most up-to-date demographics for 1,784 census-recognized locales and all 254 counties. This is followed by two chapters on state educational statistics, referencing dropout rates and national test score rankings, and quantified facts about residents' ancestry. Two additional chapters are devoted specifically to the origins of Hispanic and Asian populations. A visually informative final segment details climate and weather activity and presents 18 maps with topographical, demographic, and political significance. VERDICT This wealth of contemporary data will be invaluable in Texas libraries.-Savannah Schroll-Guz, formerly with Smithsonian Libs., Washington, DC (c) Copyright 2012.
