Identify any particular problems that the community is facing and how they are or have dealt with problems in the past.

pages 22-28 – community analysis paper: 11 pages, 10 references, all apa 7th ed
Select a community of fewer than 2,500 to analyze. The analysis should include the general characteristics of the community, some history, demographics, the social institutions and particularly the social welfare system. Identify any particular problems that the community is facing and how they are or have dealt with problems in the past. Other issues you may want to address might include how the community deals with health care issues (physical and psychological), poverty, housing issues, employment, education and special populations. Paper should be approximately 10-12 pages in length, typed and double spaced. The oral presentation, based on your paper, will take place on the same day that the paper is due and is worth 15% if your total grade. This paper will possibly require several personal visits to the selected community since not all that is in this paper will be able to be found in a census book. Data collection will require the ability to gather information from people you do not know. Useful information may be g a t h e r e d from the local newspaper and radio station covering that area; visiting local ball games, or spending time in the local hangout to get a good feel for the town and its people. The paper also needs to include how the information that you have found relates to what you have learned about rural social work, dealing with people, and the social work skills that were required during your visits.*I copied this from the syllabus. You can make up the people and visits, they don’t have to be real.
