Statistics Surrounding our ‘Most Celebrated Sporting Event’–The Super Bowl!

February 2, 2007 at 8:21 am 1 comment

OK, for once, my post is not a post about librarians, teachers, or technology. It is, however, about data–interesting data related to an important event to many this weekend: the Super Bowl.

I found it listed on Librarians’ Internet Index, one of my favorite quality reference sites, brought to us by an unlikely, at least to me, but otherwise well-known quality organization: The U.S. Census Bureau!

This short and interesting special edition press release comes from the U.S. Census Bureau’s Facts for Features & Special Editions newsroom, which collects stats on “demographic and economic subject areas intended to commemorate anniversaries or observances or to provide background information for topics in the news.” You can receive RSS feeds to these releases, too, if you want to be cool and stay up-to-date!

Anyway, this latest release provides facts and other links highlighting the demographics of the cities related to and info about the teams in this year’s Super Bowl, as well comparing how times have changed (i.e., populations, aging, educational levels, earnings, baby names) from the 1967 (Super Bowl I) to this year’s Super Bowl XLI.

It’s a quick read, so check it out!
