The format of the above data is in the forms of text, html, and pfd. 

1) This is the Michigan state website, I thought this would be useful to my assignment
because while people were attending there they were counted as residents of the state of
Michigan. Without these people the census data would be much different.

2) This link will discuss the Italian Hall disaster of 1913. This tragedy occurred December
24th, 1913 in Calumet Michigan, 73 men, women, and mostly children were crushed to
death in a stampede when someone falsely shouted “fire” at a crowded Christmas Party.
Although the death toll does not seem that high, I believe it is significant to my
assignment because mostly children perished, wiping away future generations they most
likely would of produced.

3) For the third website I have chosen to look at Forbes outlook on the population of
Detroit. The city is at an all-time low population of just under 700,000 reaching back to
the year 1910. The city has been under strict economic pressure and is building their way
out of the whole quite slowly which has forced many to look for housing elsewhere.

4) Just as in my first link I looked at the population of Indiana University, this university
accounts for 48,514 residents that live in the state. There are numerous universities in the
state showing that many residents from Indiana could have been replaced from other

5) My final link exclaims how Indiana has been on a steady rate of growth at about 2
percent increase of population per year.
