Co­hen and his team will provide in-depth over­views of each state and house dis­trict, along with demo­graph­ic data, ana­lys­is of vot­ing trends, and polit­ic­al his­tor­ies,with new cat­egor­ies on eco­nom­ic, oc­cu­pa­tion­al, so­cial, geo­graph­ic, and cam­paign fin­ance data.

“The 2016 edi­tion of The Al­man­ac of Amer­ic­an Polit­ics will be filled with fresh de­tails and in­sights on the people and events that shaped the his­tor­ic out­comes of the 2014 midterm elec­tions, plus what lies ahead for the next two years — in both policy and polit­ics,” said Co­hen. “The icon­ic book will fea­ture ex­tens­ive cam­paign-fin­ance data, and new demo­graph­ic and elec­tion de­tails on all 50 states and 435 House dis­tricts, which will be a vi­tal com­pan­ion for read­ers dur­ing the 2016 elec­tion cycle.”

The Al­man­ac of Amer­ic­an Polit­ics has been the gold stand­ard of polit­ic­al in­sight, and frankly in­spires some rev­er­ence and af­fec­tion. We are ex­cited not just to be part of the pro­cess, but by the op­por­tun­ity to work with Na­tion­al Journ­al as well as the many skilled ana­lysts who have been so help­ful in mak­ing sure this valu­able re­source con­tin­ues to be avail­able,” stated Joel Pozn­ansky, CEO, Columbia Books & In­form­a­tion Ser­vices.

Since 1972,The Al­man­ac has de­tailed the coun­try’s chan­ging polit­ic­al land­scape through each elec­tion cycle, shed­ding light on the lead­ers run­ning the coun­try and the demo­graph­ics of the people who voted them in.
