Cultural Indicators 2006
This study tracks various Alabama-specific measures of societal well-being dating back to 1960, as statistics are available. Chapters are devoted to understanding trends in crime, education, natality, and the family. We have also incorporated several new indicators, including birth rates, death rates and their leading causes, prison corrections costs, and others. At the end of each chapter we note the relationship between each of these variables and their effects on the family.
