Title: Quasars from z=0 to z=6: Demographics and Clustering as Clues to their Physical Nature
Abstract: The Sloan Digital Sky Survey has now discovered close to 100,000 quasars in a broad range of redshifts. I will discuss recent results on several topics, including their clustering properties, the nature of obscured quasars in the sample, the masses of the black holes thought to be powering them, and the nature of the highest redshift quasars known.
