Analyses of New Jersey Public Library Statistics for 1992.
Fortenbaugh, Robert K., Comp.
The purpose of this volume is to add meaning to the statistics of New Jersey's diverse public libraries. This report interprets data obtained from the annual reports of 295 public libraries in the state. The report begins with an introduction describing how the data were analyzed. The introduction then displays the following tables graphically to illustrate some of the trends that occur as population or total expenditure increase: local tax support per capita; percentage of staff with professional certification; equalized valuation per capita; and materials expenditures as a percentage of total expenses. Also included are suggested uses for the tables. The analyses of the data are presented in four categories: all public libraries in New Jersey; public libraries by region; public libraries by population served; and public libraries by total expenditures. Information provided includes the following: equalized valuation per capita; local tax support per capita; state library aid as a percentage of total income; salaries, wages, and benefits as a percentage of total expenditures; library materials as a percentage of total expenditures; circulation per capita; and total expenditures.
