Maryland: Guide to State Statistics: Maryland State Statistics

Explore the Data Planet repository for statistics on Maryland by broad subject categories.


Paleo-Indians came more than 10,000 years ago from other parts of North America to hunt mammoth, great bison and caribou in the region now part of the state of Maryland. Maryland began as a colony when King Charles I granted the Maryland Charter in 1632. Four Marylanders signed the Declaration of Independence and Maryland was the 7th state to ratify the Constitution. The largest body of water in Maryland is the Chesapeake Bay, and the state also has 50 rivers and creeks. Major industries include services, manufacturing, construction, and agriculture.

This information was drawn from Visit, where you will find more detail on Maryland history and culture.
