Abstract: From the website:
This site rates public libraries in the United States. We rely on the latest data from almost 9,000 U.S. libraries to the Federal State Cooperative Service. This is the fourth edition of the ratings. Libraries are rated, scored and ranked on 15 input and output measures. The latest (2000) public library statistics were published by the National Center for Educational Statistics in July of 2002. The HAPLR ratings have received newspaper, magazine and television coverage all over the country. See the press section for details.
