this is the goal of the Mapping project explanation: In this project the student chooses some economic variable that varies across locations in the US and is available publicly, e.g., average income by county. They then use statistical software (R, Python, Stata) to plot this variable on a map of the US. In addition they
write up to 400 words on a topic inspired by this map. For example, if you show average income you could write about income inequality across space and some of the reasons for income inequality across space that
