Choose two localities within the United States, for example a rural and an urban county in the same state, or two cities in different states, or two parts of the same city. Contrast the outcomes of children who grow up in these two places. Compare data from the two places that might have affected these outcomes. You also may want to research your chosen places for more information that is not in the data. Go to the opportunity atlas to look for data on your two places https://www.opportunityatlas.org (Links to an external site.) You can zoom in the map and click on smaller or larger areas. On the left hand side of the screen you will see information on outcomes (for example: average incomes of children growing up there, fraction making it into the top 20%, high school and college graduation rates, incarceration) as well as data on place characteristics. Compare statistics between the two places. Analyze what might explain the differences.
