Researchers at the Urban Institute have compiled state-by-state profiles of nonprofit organizations based on information filed with the U.S. Internal Revenue Service. These findings document the status of the nonprofit community in terms of its size, scope, and finances, and provide an empirical base for informing current debates about the capacity of the nonprofit sector to improve citizens' lives. The findings are summarized here with tables and charts. The paper draws some general inferences about the nonprofit sector from the assembled data.
