A possible SIP topic could compare current health-care to the plan trying to be passed in Washington. This would take into consideration population and deal almost entirely with percentages of the demographic. This could include the current percent of the population covered, payment plans etc... AS a whole, the project could compare the two plans. What percent of the population currently owns health-care, how could the new plan expand percent covered?
A second SIP proposal incorporating the collection of original data, could concern the separation of the social-classes within the city of Kalamazoo. "Is there any one social class in particular prevalent in Kalamazoo?" A demographic could be drawn by compiling information through a census, either through the mail or door-to-door. The primary factor would be income (individual and collective), and concern percentages of Kalamazoo population.
