The Pioneer Press recently noted a report from the Humphrey Institute on where women stand in Minnesota today. When reports like this appear in print it often prompts the thought that the statistics can be broad, and then leads to the question of whether the stats are true in any given location.

Do you use reports like these to check the status of your community against wider trends? If so, how do you incorporate them into your work? If not, why not? The work of history, after all, is all about recording history as it happens.
