There is no other print source, online source, or Web search engine that provides the wide range and depth of insight found in Vital Statistics on American Politics. This new 2015-2016 edition is updated with the most recent information available. The editors consult hundreds of sources to calculate and locate the data, facts, and figures that offer a vivid and multifaceted portrait of the broad spectrum of United States politics and policies.

Students, professional researchers, and interested citizens will find chapters devoted to key subject areas such as elections and political parties, public opinion and voting, the media, the three branches of U.S. government, foreign, military, social and economic policy, and much more. For depth of information and ease of use, this updated edition is the best resource of its kind available and should be a key component of all academic and large public library collections.

"... As the title infers, this book covers statistics related to politics, such as voter turnout, election results, and campaign finance. However, it also goes beyond the obvious and provides information about the topics that surround and influence politicians in the areas of foreign, social, and economic policy....Students, researchers, historians, and everyday citizens will find useful information on the main subjects that surround politics and the entire political system."
