Assignment #1: Socio-Economic and Demographic Analysis of your States States are characterized by tremendous economic, social, demographic and political diversity which structures state governments’ problems and affect their ability to deal with them.
The purpose of this assignment is to develop an understanding of how your states’ demographics shape their political challenges and affect its policies.
