Assess the extent to which the decision to live in tectonically active locations is determined by economic factors (33)
I'm using PEACE structure, how would you approach this, e.g. what points would you make?

First off, I would start off with an introduction. define the key words and introduce your case studies.

I use PEECAL, similar to your structure.
I will use one of my case studies as an example (Indonesia, Mount Merapi).
Point : To an extent economic factors determines whether people live in tectonically active areas in Indonesia.
Evidence : Population pressure in Indonesia, caused 3/4 of people to live near tectonically active locations.
Explanation : Meant housing has become not affordable, people forced to live in areas near volcanoes. (sure you can add more analysis than this)
C A (counter argument) : However, could be argued that economic factors are not the main influence to why people live near tectonically active locations (volcanoes in this case). Could be due to emotional attachment, i.e. generations of family lived here, moving away means separating from culture.
L (link) : This shows that economics factors do not determine whether people live near tectonically active locations (say why).

Other economic:
- Jobs, i.e. tourism, mount kilauea over 2 million tourists visit the volcano every year.
- Fertile soil, great for farming, generates an income

Other reasons for non economic:
- Culture, i.e. in Indonesia and Japan, volcanoes have spiritual meanings, make locals feel "happy"
- Geothermal energy
- Maybe a lot of tectonic activity here regularly. i.e. Japan hundreds of earthquakes a day, they are not dangerous. Locals willing to take the risk.
- development of country, people may believe that the country is well prepared so willing to live near volcanoes/earthquake prone areas, as they think they will be rescued.

Hope this makes sense, if you need any more help just let me know.
