Web Exercises

1. Research on homelessness has been rising in recent years as housing affordability has declined. Search the web for sites that include the word homelessness and see what you find. You might try limiting your search to those that also contain the word census. Pick a site and write a paragraph about what you learned from it.

2. Check out the “Income & Poverty” section of the U.S. Census Bureau website (https://www.census.gov/topics/income-poverty.html). Based on the data you find there, write a brief summary of some aspects of the current characteristics of the U.S. population.
