Want to know where I find some of my best information?
That’s right—the U.S. Census Bureau. It’s more than counting heads at this federal agency; it’s quantifying business, people, and our geography. This is the perfect resource for young scholars (and old ones, too) because the information is easy to find and easy to understand.
A fun-fact-filled and timely press release from the U.S. Census Bureau is available here.
On a personal note: Be sure to read down the the facts on flags. Less than 2% of American flags are imported into the United States. In fact—it is 1.345%.
So be of good cheer—the American flag industry is doing fine.
