City research.

Things to think about when researching your city:

1 Demographics – who lives there? Is it racially diverse or homogenous? Old or young? What language is spoken there?

2 Socioeconomics – are its residents mostly rich, poor, or somewhere in between?

3 Industry – what kind of businesses drive your city’s economic engine?

4 Size – how many people live there?

5 History – how did the city come into existence? How old is your city?

6 Culture – what are the main cultural influences on your city?
