Problem Set #1 Problem 1 In 1960: Average: 3590 Minimum: 408 Maximum: 16010 In 2000: Average: 8992 Minimum: 246 Maximum: 47020 Through the calculations made we can observe that the minimum over time has decreased almost to the half and that the maximum has more than doubled itself. Therefore, the difference has widened even more over time. Problem 2 Growth rates: Average: 0.01766250 Minimum: -0.03558804 Maximum: 0.06718783 Problem 3 Level of income per capita in Africa, Asia and WE in 1960 and 2000 1960 2000 Difference Africa Average 1628 2710 1082 Minimum 408 246 -162 Maximum 5304 14892 9588 Asia Average 1725 7282 5557 Minimum 677 1381 704 Maximum 4858 31130 26272 Western Europe Average 9008 26315 17307 Minimum 3665 17021 13356 Maximum 16010 47020 31010 Observing the calculations made it is possible to identify several patterns. While Africa has the lowest incomes overall (mean, min and max in both years), WE has the highest of the regions analyzed. Also WE have been able to only double its inequality but Africa and Asia have not been able to do so. Asia having increased its inequality seven times between the years analyzed.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
