Statistics and market data on Society
A human society can be defined as a group of people involved in persistent interpersonal relationships, or a large social grouping sharing the same geographical or social territory, typically subject to the same political authority and dominant cultural expectations. (source: wikipedia)
The category Society at Statista is a bit different from other categories because it is not directly related to an industry or a distinctive economical branch. Society contains a broader set of topics across industries, like macroeconomic indicators as the Gross Domestic Product or general employment figures for the workforce of the United States.
Additionally all things relating the general population of a country (mostly the U.S.) belongs in this category, ranging from general demographics, education and religion, to politics and the state of the government.
Society is organized in seven subcategories: As mentioned before there is data on demographics containing general population figures like birth and death rates, numbers on marriage and divorce, or ethnicity and age, but also data on the structure and living situation of families and households in general.
The second major subcategory contains data relating the nations’ economic development and situation. In here are gathered macroeconomic and microeconomic data, data on employment, earnings, income and poverty, cost of living and much more.
Politics and Government is the third major subcategory presenting all data and statistics on the work and status of the government, like expenses, budget plans and the public debt. Public opinion on political issues and discussion can be found here, next to data on elections and the composition of Congress. National security and defense is also a topic here.
There are four more subcategories in society regarding crime and law enforcement, education, religion and geography and environment.
