Writing Assignment 1 – Country Data Analysis and Comparison

Writing Assignment 1 – Country Data Analysis and Comparison 1. Pick 3 countries, one from each group in the Country List Table posted to Moodle. The countries are sorted according to GNI per capita. Group 1 Group 2 Group 3 GNI per capita > $35,000 per year > $100 per day GNI per capita $5000-$35,000 per year $11-$99 per day GNI per capita < $5,000 per year < $10 per day 2. Populate the Data Table Template (Excel) with information gathered from the CIA World Factbook, the UN (HDI), and The World Bank Indicators (WB). 3. Write an essay (700 good words, approximately 3 pages) in which you compare and contrast the statistics for these three countries. • Include the following in your essay: population and demographics, GDP and the composition of spending, labor utilization, government budget and debt position, and the standard of living. When discussing the standard of living, compare/contrast education, health, income distribution, and access to banking services. • Comment on the difference in rank between the GNI and HDI for each country. Note that low rank is better. What does it mean if a country is ranked higher in GNI than HDI (or vice versa)? • Add value. Do not just translate the data table into paragraphs. The reader has the table and can see all the data. Instead, think about your data. Put it into context. Make observations. Note differences in orders of magnitude. Make connections between different measures. Tell a story. • This is not a research paper. You are not expected to research the countries. You are expected to use the data in your table. • There are country summaries in the CIA Factbook. Do not cut and paste anything from these summaries (or anywhere else). 4. Upload your Data Table and Essay into Moodle. Upload your essay into Turnitin. (You are welcome to submit a hard copy of your work at the start of class on the due date.) Materials 1. CIA World Factbook 2. The World Bank Indicators (WB) 3. Human Development Report (UN) 4. Country List 5. Country Data Table Template (Excel) 6. Grading Rubric Assessment: 250 points total 1. Completion of Data Table Template: 150 points = (50 cells per country) x (3 countries) x (1 point per cell) 2. 700 (good) word essay comparing and contrasting the statistics from two countries: 100 points. See Grading Rubric. 3. I am picky about organization, spelling, grammar and punctuation. Please proofread, edit and revise for clarity. Do not submit your first rough draft. I am not picky about formatting – 12 font, double space.
