The New Jersey Almanac The New Jersey Almanac  
by Donald Linky (Editor), Gwyneth Russo (Editor)  
What are the most popular names for New Jersey babies? How many days does the average New Jersey taxpayer have to work during the year to earn enough to pay off all federal, State and local taxes? What role did the illegitimate son of Benjamin Franklin play in New Jersey history? What's the average teacher salary? How does New Jersey rank in population growth? What days of the week are the most and least  frequent for murders? What is the largest bluefish caught off New Jersey? Which countries are the source for the most immigrants to New Jersey? What is the mean temperature in January and July? How does New Jersey rank in its suicide rate?

Answers to these and hundreds of other questions about New Jersey are included in the newly-published second edition of The New Jersey Almanac--a 440-page reference book of facts, statistics and historical background of key trends affecting New Jersey published by the nonprofit Public Affairs Research Institute of New Jersey (PARI) based in Princeton. The Almanac now includes photographs, prints and reproductions of historic manuscripts, such as the original 1776 Constitution; the colonial censuses of 1742 and 1756; the Lindbergh kidnapping wanted poster; the Hindenburg disaster; Thomas Edison in his Menlo Park laboratory; Civil War campaign tickets; and many others.

The Almanac includes chapters on history; people and demographics; money and income; taxes; government; education; higher education; environment; health; crime; energy; agriculture and food; and transportation. Each chapter includes an overview of trends and performance; "fast facts" of key information and data; summaries of key state-by-state rankings; and a selection of charts, tables and text   profiles.
