You will be preparing tables, figures, or graphs (your choice) to address specific queries. Imagine these queries have come from your supervisor, who plans to present the work to officials with the Department of Corrections in a “state of the correctional state” address.
· Be sure to provide a title for each table, graph, or figure.
Use ONLY the following site and provided files to pull data from!
1. Compare the prison population of Florida with 2 states, each of which are from different regions of the country (e.g., Northeast, Midwest, Southwest, West Coast). Provide 5 years of the most recent data available. Underneath your graph, table, or figure, report 3 major relevant findings revealed by this data.
2. Using 2017 data only, show differences in the use of capital punishment for 4 states from 4 different regions of the country (e.g., Northeast, Midwest, Southwest, West Coast). Specifically, for these 4 states, report the number of people under sentence of death, number of executions, and racial composition of death row inmates. Underneath your graph, table, or figure, report 3 major relevant findings revealed by this data.
3. Using the most recent data available, report the size of the correctional system (number of facilities per state), incarceration rate and prison population, correctional system budget costs, and crime rate associated with 3 states. You may pick any 3 states, but in reporting the 3 major relevant findings, include your rationale for selecting these 3 states. Again, present the data in a graph, table or figure form.
