CHAMPAIGN, Ill. -- The 2000 Illinois Statistical Abstract has been completed by the Bureau of Economic and Business Research at the University of Illinois.

With 830 pages of charts, tables and graphs, the book is a comprehensive compilation of economic and demographic information on Illinois.

Data in 28 categories -- ranging from crimes rates and agricultural receipts to health statistics and retail store sales -- are arranged by county and metropolitan area. Wherever possible, data going back to 1989 are included, as are comparative figures of the United States as a whole.

"Our information comes from more than 45 different sources in the public and private sectors and a lot of the data are not available to libraries," said Susan R. Hartter, the chief editor of the Abstract.

The book contains data available through October 2000. It is part of the continuing service mission of the College of Commerce and Business Administration to provide "historical and current socio-economic data to businesses, governments, educators, students and the general public," Hartter wrote.

A softbound copy of the Abstract is available for $60 from the Office of Research, College of Commerce and Business Administration, 430 Wohlers Hall, 1206 S. Sixth St., Champaign, IL 61820; (217) 333-2330. The material also is available on disk and CD-ROM.
