Puget Sound Area: Counties/ Metropolitan Areas Project/Exercise

(http://faculty.washington.edu/krumme/350/exercises/pugetsound.html)


Under Construction!

For a number of exercises in this class, you are asked to select one "statistically viable" region within the Puget Sound Area (e.g. a metropolitan area and/or one of the counties = your "region"). In addition, your substantive area of specialization (your "field") should have some relationship to this region. The relevant counties and metropolitan areas are listed below (at the bottom of this page). You will find useful general and specific resources elsewhere on this page.
