 With the countries you analyzed in Part A *** I have attached my Part A paper.


 PLEASE NOTE: The countries you choose for Part A will be the countries you refer to through Parts A, B, and C. If, for some reason, information is not available for one of your chosen countries at the websites cited by a particular question, please choose another country to answer that question, and NOTIFY ME and MAKE NOTE in the Project of the CHANGE. 


 

I will run the submissions through an anti-plagiarism software.  Failure to reference the websites or any other research will result in a grade reduction of 8 points in your project score.


Please include the tables provided by the websites!  Failure to do so will result in half the points being subtracted from your grade.



 Please note that I use Turn-It-In anti-plagiarism software.  If you directly quote a source, use quotation marks.  Any Turn-It-In score over 25% is subject to points being subtracted from your grade.
