At the end of Section Three is a Value of the Dollar Index that compares the buying power of $1.00 in 1860 to every year up to 2019, helping to put the economic data in This Is Who We Were in the 2010s into context.

All Around Us: This section offers a ringside seat to the issues and attitudes that were the 2010s in America.

They show how America’s changing ideas on education, politics, the arts, race, immigration, and gender and sexuality were shaped.

2010 Census Data: This section includes invaluable data to help define the 2010s: state-by-state comparative tables and actual reprints from the Census of Population, including a Census of Housing, Census of Agriculture, and special reports on Marital Status, Education, and Fertility.
