Structured around the 75 largest US metropolitan areas, this extensive reference work provides well-ordered details on 2,888 suburbs across the country. Within each metro area section (each of which includes state and metro maps and keys), each suburb is listed alphabetically, and statistically profiled according to most or all of a standard set of categories (including geography, demographics, ancestry, economy, income, taxes, education, housing, transportation and safety), with most entries also containing a one- or two-sentence historical note. Each metro area's suburbs are further ranked against each other according to a variety of finer-grained characteristics, such as home values and crime rates. The metro areas themselves are profiled according to overall statistics for demographics, income, education, housing, religion, health insurance, and air quality. New to this edition is a section of Metropolitan Area Rankings, which ranks all 75 metro areas against each other according to 51 different data points. All 2,888 suburbs are also listed alphabetically in a combined Suburb Index, with page numbers referencing their primary listings.
