Updated State Population, Employment, Income, Exports

Just out (Friday, August 28, 2009) from the Economic Research Service of the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture, State fact sheets which provide information on population, employment, income, farm characteristics, farm financial indicators, and top commodities, exports, and counties for each state in the United States.

If you are looking for per-capita income, earnings per job, the poverty rate, education, total number of jobs, the unemployment rate, you will find it here.

Find California information here.

Why am I telling you this? Most government information including federal and state statistics are now available in electronic form and you are less likely to find a printed edition in libraries.
