* Provides new ways of thinking about the history of women in the United States

* Examines the systems used to gather and publish federal statistics, identifying their strengths, weaknesses, and biases

* Demonstrates the need for applying critical thinking skills even when examining assumedly trustworthy statistics from official sources

* Reveals how details of women's lives in the United States have been erased or disguised in data that is considered authoritative and reliable
