Also listed are a glossary, a list of table/chart sources, a subject index, and the addresses of 12 relevant information resources and U.S. Census Bureau telephone contacts for data users requiring general information and/or information on business economics, demographics, geographic concepts, government, housing, income, poverty and wealth, international statistics, and the labor force.
