 The Growth of Youth Gang Problems in the United States: 1970-98 -- OJJDP Report -- April 2001   (Site not responding. Last check: )
However, as indicated by the counting rules, when a county was listed because it contained a gang city reported by a city agency, the city report became the basis for adding two localities—a city and a county—to the total number, raising the possibility of an overlap of cities and counties.
Thus, although the number of counties and cities in the United States remained virtually unchanged during the 25-year period, the number of gang cities increased by 640 percent and the number of gang counties increased by 867 percent.
For example, since the number of gang States in the 1970's was 20 and rose to 50 in 1995, 50 is divided by 20 to produce the statement that the number of gang States increased 2.5 times.

For individual States, the magnitude of increase in the number of gang counties during the 25-year period is smaller than the increase in cities, primarily because the number of counties is one-sixth the number of cities.
The State with the largest magnitude of increase is Florida, which had a 23-fold increase in the number of gang counties during the 25-year period.
The eightfold increase in Texas was sufficient to propel the State to the top position in the 1995 ranking of gang counties by State, as shown in table 10.

 Palm Beach County and Counties across the United States
We show that in Palm Beach County in the 2000 election the discrepancy between the share of votes expected for Buchanan on the basis of previous election results and the share of votes Buchanan actually received was exceptionally large.
The discrepancy in Palm Beach County was the second largest among the 3,015 counties in the U.S. for which discrepancies could be estimated.
Most of the other counties for which we observe extremely large discrepancies either trace to documented balloting problems or occur in patterns that suggest that systematic and distinctive patterns of support for Buchanan developed in those places.

 Residents in Over 50 Percent of the Largest Counties in the United States are Not Prepared for Retirement
These Americans, in 132 of the 250 largest counties across the country, face a high risk of not having enough income in retirement to allow them to maintain their standard of living.
The study, entitled "The Retirement Readiness Assessment: Are You Prepared?" assesses the retirement risk of the 250 largest U.S. counties in an effort to bring attention to the lack of preparedness across the country and the need for public policy solutions to address pervasive retirement insecurity in America.
The combination of these variables allows each county to be categorized on a relative scale according to their retirement preparedness ranging from "Very High Retirement Risk" to "Nominal Retirement Risk." The six counties where the need for reliable, lifelong retirement income is most urgent are all in Florida: Lee, Marion, Pasco, Polk, Sarasota and Volusia.
