    I've been doing a paragraph on income and relate it to diet, and then a paragraph on lifestyle choices and relate it to smoking, but say that those on a lower income are more likely to smoke, and then a final paragraph on geography and relate it to life expectancy, hospitalisation rates etc, and then link that back to income.

    I dunno how that would be marked, and if I'm even approaching it the right way, but oh well

    I do the same as you basically! I just do diet linked to income, exercise linked to income, alcohol and smoking linked to income and then geography linked to income and i got a good mark on it.

    (Original post by confused!)
    i've just made a plan for a question that goes by the lines of: "to what extent do ethnic minorities affect the outcome of elections."

    intro –

    • by 2050, 60% will be an ethnic minority.
    • they play a large part in the outcome of elections
    • democrats = younger gen. Republicans = older gen.


    para 1 (blacks)

    • typically democrat voters
    • around 68% were registered voters in 2008 but now 59% in 2012 elections
    • 95% voted for democrats in 2008, 93% in 2012.
    • over 13.5% of population is black in usa
    • 58% of the registered voters turned out to vote for the democrats
    • barack obama is black and is known to have the most ethnically diverse cabinet in us politics
    • mostly democrats due to colour, culture and welfare benefits.
    • however, yearly the republicans try and gain votes.


    para 2 (hispanics)

    • parties spend millions advertising in spanish (it’s the second language of the states)
    • the hispanic population weren’t interested as much in us politics until proposition 187 which was
    • 40% of california is known to be from a hispanic background
    • cubans are usually rich where as mexicans are poorer and live in varrio’s.
    • hispanics are also usually democrats, 67% in 2008 and 58% in 2012.
    • 10% of voters were hispanic – 7% for democrats


    para 3 (asian americans)

    • 71% of the asian american population voted for democrats in 2012.
    • they accounted for 3% of the overall vote
    • there were 3.2m votes for obama and 900k for romney.
    • account for 4.8% of the population in the usa.


    para 4 (native americans)

    • native americans account for 1% of the population.
    • they make a fractional difference to the votes.
    • tend to vote democrats aswell.


    conclusion

    • it is clear that ethnic minorities have a large influence on election outcomes as it was clearly shown in 2012.


    side notes

    - proposition 187 (california) was put in place to prevent illegal immigrants from using healthcare, education and other social services.
