Index of Anything

This is a .html file index to my research files and writing, it just may have the most comprehensive list of statistics and rankings in the world, and I've got rankings by religion, gender, and orientation with all 4 or 5 major racial categories also in some spots.

Some entries give file locations on my local hard drive which you can't look at, but I try to put a good summary into the web index. For best results, go to asianam.htm since this is an Asian-centric database with every statistic every dug up on Asians and Asian Americans. You get the other races for no extra charge.

Files whose location is under priv are often copyrighted or private. You can read them under "fair use" as in a library, but not distribute them without permission. I don't yet have enough web space to put everything on line. Until I do, I can email you a small number of files you would like to look at as attachments, or as ascii files if I have them.

Index Levels - how to search for next level with a
text editor like emacs or vi

Under MS windows, you can use copy the name to the clipboard
and then use ^V to enter the name in the file open box for
a text editor, or Excel spreadsheet.

"The Proud Armenians" National Geographic June 1978 p. 846 Robert
Paul Jordan "In 1915, the Ottoman Empire, allied with the Cental
Powers, embarked on a mass deportation of its Armenian minority, some
of whom were collaborating with the enemy, Russia. Starvation and
mass executions killed two-thirds of the empire's Armenians." "In all
an estimated million and a half died" (That would make it one of the
most devastating exterminations as a percentage of population) The
most obvious sign of ethnic identity - a name ending in ian or yan
meaning "of" or "from". About a half-million Armenians live in the
US. 150,000 are in California
