About “The South is Not a Lost Cause: How Georgia’s Changing Political Opinions Defy Southern Stereotypes”

About “Understanding the Impact of Dollar Stores on Food Deserts”
For Introduction to Political Research, each student was asked to complete a research project that included conducting data analysis through SPSS. My project centered around dollar store companies Dollar General Corp. and Dollar Tree Inc. and finding a correlation between their locations and the location of food deserts. I used the 30 states with the highest number of food deserts and created a linear regression model to test my hypothesis that, in comparing states with high levels of food insecurity, those that have more food deserts will have more Dollar General Corp. and Dollar Tree Inc. store locations than those with less food deserts. This study found support for my hypothesis and encourages further study of how corporations may take advantage of vulnerable populations such as those living in food deserts.
