You should also include the opportunity insights project data, “children’s outcomes in adulthood,” at the top of the drop-down menu for new york and pennsylvania (unfortunately, it’s completely unavailable for puerto rico).

Essay 2: Using the Opportunity Atlas, compare some of the Neighborhood Characteristics of Levittown in Pennsylvania (Tracts 401; 402; 404; 406; 408; 803; 804; 805; 807; 808; 809; 810; 811; and 812), New York (Tracts 86-95), and Puerto Rico (Tracts 200, 2da; 300, 1ra; 400, 3ra; 500, 4ta; 600; and 700, 6ta). Note that you will need to navigate manually to find Levittown in Puerto Rico and available data is very limited, so you will not be able to compare it across many categories. As you investigate the maps, you will decide which data points render the most interesting results. You should also include the Opportunity Insights project data, “Children’s Outcomes in Adulthood,” at the top of the drop-down menu for New York and Pennsylvania (unfortunately, it’s completely unavailable for Puerto Rico).
In 2-3 paragraphs, present a comparative analysis of the Opportunity Atlas data from the Levittown census tracts that you would like to highlight (and any additional information you would like to incorporate from the other sites, like the Census Finder) and interpret this data using evidence from the various materials on Levittowns (Dianne Harris’s Introduction and chapter on Levittown, “Crisis in Levittown,” Kenneth Jackson’s “Drive-in Culture” excerpt, the La Brega podcast episode, “Long Island Divided,” etc.).
Note that there are many ways to answer this question; you must simply select the data points (refer to at least three) you would like to discuss and make a case for your argument by using the materials from the first half of the course (again, citing at least three, including quotes and paraphrasing).
