Heads of State and/or Government of the Member States of the United Nations (UN) gathered at UN Headquarters in New York to participate in the Millennium Summit on 6 to 8 September 2000. The Summit was intended to provide an opportunity for nations to agree on a process for fundamental review of the role of, and challenges facing the United Nations in the new century. In advance of the Millennium Summit, on 3 April 2000, the Secretary-General presented his report "We the peoples: The role of the United Nations in the twenty-first century" (A/54/2000) in which he identified challenges facing the international community and put forward an action plan for addressing them. As a companion event, and further to the Secretary-General’s recommendation, civil society organizations organized and held on 22-26 May 2000, a "Millennium Forum" was held during which the Millennium Forum Declaration and Agenda for Action. The eight Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) – which range from halving extreme poverty rates to halting the spread of HIV/AIDS and providing universal primary education, all by the target date of 2015 – form a blueprint agreed to by 189 of the world’s countries and all the world’s leading development institutions. They have galvanized unprecedented efforts to meet the needs of the world’s poorest. The statistics presented here measure progress toward meeting the Millennium Development Goal 1: Eradicate Extreme Poverty and Hunger. The data and analyses are the product of the work of the Inter-agency and Expert Group (IAEG) on MDG Indicators, coordinated by the UN Statistics Division. http://mdgs.un.org/unsd/mdg/Data.aspx Category: Education, International Relations and Trade Subject: Employment, Economic Development, Social Development, Unemployment Source: United Nations The United Nations (UN) was founded in 1945 after WWII by 51 countries committed to maintaining international peace and security, developing friendly relations among nations, and promoting social progress, better living standards, and human rights.

  • Energy Information Administration. State Energy Data System: Coal | State: Alabama | Indicator: Coal expenditures at coke plants., 1970 - 2014. Data Planet™ Statistical Datasets: A SAGE Publishing Resource Dataset-ID: 004-012-006 Dataset: Reports estimates of coal consumption, prices, and expenditures for the United States as a whole and for individual states and Washington, DC, as available. Coal is a readily combustible black or brownish-black rock whose composition, including inherent moisture, consists of more than 50 percent by weight and more than 70 percent by volume of carbonaceous material. It is formed from plant remains that have been compacted, hardened, chemically altered, and metamorphosed by heat and pressure over geologic time. The State Energy Data System (SEDS) is maintained and operated by the United States Energy Information Administration (EIA). The goal in maintaining SEDS is to create historical time series of energy production, consumption, prices, and expenditures by state that are defined as consistently as possible over time and across sectors. SEDS is used primarily to provide (1) state energy production, consumption, price, and expenditure estimates to Members of Congress, federal and state agencies, and the general public; and (2) the historical time series necessary to develop EIA’s energy models. Efforts are made to ensure that the sums of the state estimates equal the national totals as closely as possible for each energy type and end-use sector as published in other EIA publications. SEDS state energy consumption estimates are generally comparable to the statistics in EIA's Annual Energy Review and Monthly Energy Review consumption tables. Although SEDS incorporates the most consistent series and procedures possible, users of this report should recognize the limitations of the data that are due to changing and inadequate data sources. See the technical documentation for information on data inconsistencies. http://www.eia.gov/state/seds/seds-data-complete.cfm Category: Energy Resources and Industries Subject: Energy Expenditures, Coal, Energy Consumption, Fossil Fuels, Fuels, Fuel Prices Source: Energy Information Administration The Energy Information Administration (EIA), created by Congress in 1977, is an independent statistical and analytical agency within the United States Department of Energy.

  • United States Census Bureau. Population Estimates - Detail (1980 - Current): Population Estimates | Age: All Ages | Gender: All Genders | Race: All Races, 2017. Data Planet™ Statistical Datasets: A SAGE Publishing Resource Dataset-ID: 001-001-001 Dataset: Shows estimated population, by state, county, age, sex, and race and Hispanic ethnicity. Presents state and county resident population by age, sex, race, and Hispanic origin from the Population Estimates Program of the US Census Bureau. The annual time series of estimates begins with the most recent decennial census data and extends to the vintage year. The reference date for estimates is July 1.

Hispanic origin is considered an ethnicity, not a race. Hispanics may be of any race. Responses of "Some Other Race" from the 2010 Census are modified, which results in differences between the population for specific race categories shown for the 2010 Census population in this table versus those in the original 2010 Census data.

  • United States Census Bureau. American Community Survey Summary File: 5-Year Estimates, 2013-2017: B12002. Sex by Marital Status by Age for the Population 15 Years and Over | Demographic Indicator: Male: Now Married:, Female: Now Married:, 2017. Data Planet™ Statistical Datasets: A SAGE Publishing Resource Dataset-ID: 001-066-205 Dataset: Presents an estimate of the size of the United States population age 15+ by sex and marital status for the total population. Estimates are reported for males and females in each marital status for defined age groups. Data are presented for specified geographic areas. The American Community Survey (ACS) conducted by the US Census Bureau provides estimates of the characteristics of the population over a specific time period. The ACS collects data from the 50 states, Washington, DC, and Puerto Rico, where it is called the Puerto Rico Community Survey. It is a continuous survey, in which each month a sample of housing unit addresses receives a questionnaire, with approximately 3.5 million addresses surveyed each year. Each year the survey produces data pooled to produce 1-year, 3-year, and 5-year estimates for geographic areas in the US and Puerto Rico, ranging from neighborhoods to congressional districts to the entire nation. Data for each release of the 5-year estimates were collected over a 5-year period ending December 31 of the reference year (eg, data in the 2017 5-year estimates were collected January 1, 2013 - December 31, 2017). The statistics reported represent the characteristics of the population for the entire period vs a specific year within that period. The 5-year estimates are published for areas with populations of all sizes and are the most reliable and precise of the ACS period estimates as well as the most comprehensive, albeit the least current. (The 1-year and 3-year estimates provide data on areas with populations of 65,000+ and 20,000+, respectively. Note that the ACS 3-year estimates were discontinued with the 2011-2013 release). The ACS estimates provide information about the social and economic needs of communities and are used to help determine how more than $675 billion in federal and state funds are distributed each year. It is conducted under the authority of Title 13, United States Code, Sections 141 and 193. Note that counts of the population are provided by the Census of Population and Housing conducted by the US Census Bureau every 10 years; and official estimates of the population are derived from the previous census and from the Census Bureau’s Population Estimates Program. https://www.census.gov/programs-surveys/acs/data/summary-file.html Category: Population and Income Subject: Ethnicity, Race, Population, Gender, Population Size, Marital Status, Single Persons, Age, Married Persons Source: United States Census Bureau The United States Census Bureau is a bureau of the US Department of Commerce.
