MGinnetti Immigration


  • What surprised you most about this information?  What seemed quite obvious about explaining this data set?
    I am surprised, that during some internal conflict within the united states we still accepted a lot of immigrants, such as during the civil war.  Times such as the great depression seemed quite obvious on why we did not accept immigrants 

  • Looking at the overall trend and incorporating what you know about the US presently, predict and defend the immigration trend for the next two decades.
    I think within the next 2 decades immigration will die down.  The trend seems to be that for a period of time that there is a lot of immigration and then it stops.

  • Describe how you made a decision on how to visually represent the information.
    Our group particularly like the example of the graph with the images on it, so we tried to re-create that example just with our dates and instead f putting pictures on the top we made each bar  a picture.

  • What parts of group work were challenging?
    The hardest part was coming up with a way to visually represent the data, the easy part was getting the a reasons why it happend.

  • What would you do differently if you had this project to do over?
    I would choose to maybe make the graph look a little more presentable and easier to read.
