An Economic Approach to Solving Issues of Single Parenthood
View Polygence scholar page
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.
