Introduction: An overview of your paper.

Statement of Problem: This would have already been researched in the first assignment (if using one of the analyses). However, this is an opportunity to expand on new information. Describe the problem you are interested in using local, state and national data and demographics, as well as readings and internet research. How does the data explain the significance of the problem not addressed by present policy/practices? Who does it affect? What are the special populations that experience the problem?

Policy Recommendations/Proposal: The recommendations should outline a comprehensive proposal for change in the form of a policy. Give reasons you think your proposal/model will be successful. Make sure you use outside data rather than your own assumptions or intuition. If your proposal includes present model practices being used, please outline the methodology used, demographics and statistical data for proven success, as well as methods used for gathering such data. Your proposal for change should directly impact your problem statement.
