Assignment 1: Descriptive Statistics (10%)
You have access to a file containing county-level data on the percentage of voters in each county voting for the Democratic Presidential nominee in the 2016 election. In this database you also have 11 other variables which describe the socio-economic profile of each county and you have the state in which each county is located.
Your task in this assignment is to write a report (max 5 pages single-spaced included diagrams and charts) describing and comparing the data you have been given for two of the states in the data base. In order to determine which two states to compare, consider the following table of states, all of which have at least 30 counties:
To do this, select the state corresponding to the day of the month on which you were born and one other of your preference.
For your report, describe and compare the voting behavior in the two states and also aspects of the socio-economic characteristics of the two states using various descriptive statistics that you think best support your statements.
