Facts & Figures Handbooks
August 5, 2009
Wow! Our new mid-year update of our Facts & Figures: How Does Your State Compare handbook has been downloaded 30,000 times in the past week, and we’ve mailed out nearly 8,000 hard copies as well. You can download a PDF of the booklet here, and free single copies are available within the continental U.S. Send us an e-mail with your name and mailing address; please allow two weeks for delivery.
We’re always interested in hearing about how the booklet has been useful and for tables to keep, improve, or add. It is amazing (and common) when we visit a state capitol or a legislative committee and we spot people pulling it out of their briefcase or pocket to reference it!
As we noted, this is the first mid-year update we’ve done of Facts & Figures since the handbook was first published by the Tax Foundation in 1941. A few people have expressed curiosity about that first edition: you can see a PDF of the 1941 Facts & Figures here. Some of the art (in color) from that edition graces the walls of our office.
