A $3.6 billion industry, an average of $1.07 per pound, and 13.4 pounds per person per year…




Its turkey! For many of the major holidays the US Census website prepares fun factoids related to that time of the year, calling them "Facts for Features."

Did you know that there are three towns called Turkey in the United States? Or that 1.6 billion pounds of sweet potatoes were produced in the United States in 2005?

Yummy. Read more about it here or just click on the turkey on the left side of the main census page, http://www.census.gov/ .

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
