Write an article targeted to the general reader telling a story which combines
results from two different surveys. Make sure your article incorporates the following: (a)
description of data sources, including how and why the data was collected by the respective
organizations; (b) measures of uncertainty; (c) visualizations; (d) limitations of your analysis;
and (e) references. Notes: Do not repeat analyses I’ve done in class. Also, the surveys
themselves are references. Finally, cite your references when you refer to them within your
paper, in addition to including the full reference information in your bibliography.
