An Economic Approach to Solving Issues of Single Parenthood

Project's result

Presented at the Symposium of Rising Scholars and wrote a research paper

They started it from zero. Are you ready to level up with us?


Using basic statistics and comparisons of GDP rates in states and income rates for families within these states, I will highlight the disparities between states in different regions, such as the Northeast and the South. My research aims to discern whether there is a link between these rates and rates of single parenthood. I aim to highlight the issues that come with single parenthood and find a solution to these issues through policy and the law. To that end, I will craft realistic economic government policy strategies to find a solution to these issues by increasing employment rates and diversifying available fields for specialized workers. I research and use examples of existing policy to bolster my own ideas and make use of comparative statistics to both find challenges to my proposed policy and to argue its effectiveness compared to other possibilities.

Project review

“My experience with Polygence exceeded my expectations.”

About my mentor

“He had similar "why's" to what he did as I do, and it was very easy to converse with him outside of the project about career tips and how he became a lawyer.”
