Alabama Roads Better Than Most States

In its most recent assessment, the American Society of Civil Engineers gave the United States a failing grade for its infrastructure.

Mobile is the 4th Least Healthy City in America

Thanks to continued improvement in public health care, Americans today are healthier than ever. The average American is expected to live 79 years, about six years longer than in 1975.

Alabama Among the Worst States for Women

The U.S. could elect the first female president in its history this November. For many advocates, representation in the nation’s highest office could lead to meaningful progress for women’s rights, potentially addressing some of the severe inequalities the nation has yet to overcome. These issues include a gender pay gap, a lack of flexibility in […]

Why Fewer People Vote in Alabama

In this year’s presidential primaries, more than 57.6 million Americans went to the polls, slightly less than the 2008 all-time record.

Blount is the Most Republican County in Alabama

In just over a month, the United States will finally elect its next president after close to two years of campaigning, fundraising, scandals, and debates. Republican candidate Donald Trump is considered an outsider to politics and the party. As a result — and because Trump’s views have sometimes clashed with the party’s vision — some […]

Greene is the Most Democratic County in Alabama

Next month, the United States will finally elect its next president after nearly two years of campaigning, fundraising, scandals, and debates. The Democratic party has never been perfectly unified. In this year’s Democratic primary, disagreements among registered Democrats seemed especially acute. Approximately 12 million Americans voted for former presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, versus the 15.8 […]

Why Cars and Passenger Vehicles Are the Top Selling Products in Alabama

The United States exported a total of $2.26 trillion worth of goods and services in 2015, down slightly from a record high of $2.38 trillion in 2014.
