For decades Americans have turned to the Commerce Department's Index of Leading Economic Indicators to spot trends in the economy. The Index of Leading Cultural Indicators brings a similar kind of empirical analysis to the moral, social and behavioral condition of American society-a vivid, clear accessible portrait in numbers of who and where we are as a nation. First published in 1995 and now completely updated and considerably expanded, it draws from a wide array of government sources to offer comprehensive chapters on crime, family and children, youth pathologies and behavior, education, popular culture and religion, as well as new chapters on the American spirit, on international and decade by decade comparisons, and a ranking Os states and cities. For each topic covered, there are statistical and numerical breakdown tables and graphs and a "Factual Overview" interpreting the data.
