Do you agree with this statement?

The first five questions are related to U.S Census.pdf and the sixth question is related to TIGER.pdf. Please read the two documents answer the questions below and write one paragraph for each article explaining what each article is talking about.
(1) What is census enumeration? What are the challenges the census faces when doing enumeration? (2) What are the methods to use for the estimation of the size of the under-count population? (3) On page 5, the second paragraph “The Census Bureau Proposed moving to a sample survey as the basis for estimating the total population. Many statisticians agreed that sampling could produce a higher quality result than enumeration?” Are you surprised? Do you agree with this statement? Why do you agree or disagree with it? (4) What are the differences between sample errors and non-sampling errors? Which errors are easily controlled in your opinion? (5) What is Census Population Framework? What is the geographic Framework? Which framework do you use in the GIS project? (6) What’s TIGER/Line data? Discuss the pros and cons of using TIGER/Line data.

What is occurring within cities.

You must answer both questions, and your entire paper must be 4-6 pages double-spaced. Include both essays in one document and make one submission. You only need to use the textbook for the essays, and citations are not necessary unless you are using quotes. PROMPT 1
The policies of both Import-Substitution Industrialization and Neoliberalism strongly influenced the urban
geography of Latin America, but in profoundly different ways. First, differentiate between the two policies
and then compare and contrast their effects on urban areas, including the distribution of cities as well as
what is occurring within cities. Be sure to include ALL of the following terms/concepts in your answer:
urban growth, overurbanization, urban primacy, informal sector (housing and employment), squatter
settlements/favelas, privatization, gender and secondary cities. When using these terms, be sure they
are put in bold. If not, points will be deducted.
PROMPT 2
On p. 57, Klak states that “Sustainable Development has, in recent years, become a universally
annunciated goal”. Discuss what is meant by sustainable development, both culturally and
environmentally, followed by a discussion of how that goal is threatened or enabled by various activities
within the region such as an expanding export economy, tourism in its various forms (be sure you
incorporate at least 3 forms of tourism in this discussion), and drug production (SEE CHAPTERS 10 AND
11). Lastly, do you feel that the gradual transition away from neoliberalism would improve or deter the
region’s sustainability efforts? Why (be as specific as possible)?
Each answer should be no more than 2-3 pages, double-spaced. You must do both questions. Late
assignments will NOT be accepted under any circumstances.

Uses of Geoinformatics in Disaster Management

Learning Goal: I’m working on a geographic information report and need an explanation and answer to help me learn. An illustrated report on: Uses of Geoinformatics in Disaster Management Word count: 3,000 words (+/- 10% – excluding the Title, Contents list, References and optional Appendix). Also, show the word-count of your report at the end of the main body of text, just before your References section. Nb. Use 12-pt font size throughout the report.Illustrate your report with maps or images that you have produced in the practical sessions for this module, as well as with illustrations from academic journals, books and the Internet (with the associated caption citing the source of the illustration)Assignment submitted via Turnitin on the Moodle page for this module. Deadline: due by 2pm on 14 February 2022.Criteria on which your report will be assessed:Organisation of report ( – page numbering helps with that!)Contents page: lists of Figures, Tables and acronyms used in your report.Abstract: an executive summary, ca. 300 words will sufficeIntroduction: setting the scene….- What does “geoinformatics” involve ? – ie, summarise the key features of GIS, GPS , remote sensing and social media technologies…- What does “Disaster Management” mean ? e.g explain the Disaster CycleLiterature review:- examples & case studies: geoinformatics applied to disaster managementDiscussion: critical assessment of geoinformatics applied to disaster management; Often useful to start with a Summary table of key points / comparisons:- Benefits of geoinformatics- Limitations of geoinformatics- Recommendations for optimum uses Conclusion: a summary of your main findings Referencing use the APA referencing format :https://library.port.ac.uk/ref/page2.htmlIllustrations (and their sources) – present illustrations and tables within the relevant section of text, as Figure 1 (and caption), Figure 2 etc; also give tables as Table 1 (and caption), Table 2 etc.You are expected to include some relevant illustrations that you have produced using geoinformatics (e.g. remote sensing images, Google Earth, QGIS, social media). Presentation: high quality – and within the 3000-word limit ? Further advice on publishing your report 1 Organisation of the report is crucial. After the introduction, material should be presented to the reader in a logical sequence. In general, aim to clearly differentiate between objective information (ie., published material) and the interpretation of that factual information (ie., the subjective part of your report). This differentiation is best achieved by concentrating your subjective interpretations under a ‘Discussion’ subheading.2 Remember that communication is greatly aided by maps, diagrams, and other illustrations. You should be actively thinking of illustrations that would help the reader understand and appreciate your work. By all means use diagrams photo copied from journal articles (appropriately acknowledged of course) but do write your own captions, rather than simply relying on the original caption. 3 Write the report keeping the reader uppermost in your mind ie. it must be “user-friendly”. This is achieved by clear and concise writing which avoids repetition and which maintains a clear focus on the topic. You should also provide a clear introduction and provide background information necessary to give context to what follows. 4 Sub-headings: In addition to being well illustrated, you should use sub-headings to aid the reader (incidentally, sub-headings will also help you organise your work). 5 Tell the reader what you are trying to achieve with the report and provide them with the information they need to follow, as you lead them through your work. Examples of the sort of information the reader needs include: Why is it interesting / important? What does the report aim to do? How do you intend to achieve your aim?In essence, you are taking the reader on a journey with you through your work, so that they, firstly, completely understand the topic and, second, know why you have arrived at the conclusions about it that you have. Remember to ensure that your conclusions at the end of the report relate to your aim expressed in the introduction. And that they are clearly supported by the material you have presented in the report. It is likely, at the end of your writing when you know exactly what you have, that the Introduction will need to be modified slightly to best reflect the content that has evolved.6 Make sure your report analyses: ie., does not merely re-tell information from published sources, but gets to grips with the topic in an analytical and critical way. This is the scholarly approach which is expected of MSc candidates. In short: think ! It is understood that you are not yet a professional analyst, with specialist knowledge directly relevant to the chosen topic, but that should not prevent you forming an opinion on the current status of scientific understanding and/or debate, based on what you have read. Hence, you need to allocate time for preparing the Discussion section of your report.7 Remember that the information which is likely to highlight aspects of your interest and critical analysis, resides in journal articles (particularly recently published articles). Textbooks and many web resources concentrate on established information, but may be useful for background data.8 Make full use of electronic databases such as Science Direct, Jstore, Springer Link, Ebscohost, Blackwell Synergy, Cambridge Journals Online, Oxford Journals Online, Ingenta, Google Scholar, GeoRef. Remember to be creative and flexible in using key words etc. in these search engines. 9 Ensure that your referencing is spot on; ie., all material properly acknowledged by citations at appropriate points in the text, and all references listed alphabetically at the end of the report. Everything must be fully referenced and acknowledged so there can be no suspicion of plagiarism. 10 Figures: use them ! Refer to your illustrative material wherever appropriate in the text. Treat these illustrations as an integral component of your communication with the reader. Make sure that each Figure caption contains sufficient description to allow the reader to fully understand what is presented. Also, ensure that any key text in figures or maps (e.g. a map legend) is big enough to read. Remember to cite the source of each figure in the caption and include that Reference in the list at the end of your report. 11 Abstract: Your report must start with an Abstract (a short summary of the report, emphasising results and conclusions, which, with the title of the report, can stand alone in conveying the essence of your work). Please note the abstract is NOT merely an introduction to your work, it emphasises your findings and conclusions. The abstract is standard in the scientific world, as well as the commercial and business world (where it is termed an ‘Executive Summary’). The easiest time to write the Abstract is after you have finished your report, although it is placed at the beginning. 12 Finally, check for spelling and grammatical errors….. This requires very careful proof reading, in addition to running your spell checker. Carelessness in this aspect inevitably creates a negative impression about the quality of the work itself.
