Great new site for U.S. State Facts and Figures

StateMaster.com is more than just a rehash of census data. They have grouped the information wisely and added comparison features and quick maps and graphs. The site is quick to load and easy to use. Here's a description from their own site: "Welcome to StateMaster.com, a unique statistical database which allows you to research and compare a multitude of different data on US states." Where StateMaster.com excels is the ability to quickly access data and view it in a variety of graphs, maps, and charts. I only wish I had this site when I was writing my final papers. The website is well managed and easy to use. Their stats are well researched and in detail. They have everything from death rates to how 4th and 5th graders did in math. A ticker sits on the top of the website and spouts interesting facts from their files. Make sure to click on it to find more info. Overall, a vital source of information and facts with a quick and easy to use website. Site: StateMaster.com
