The employment data as shown below come from 2000 and 2010 censuses. You are asked to use the data to answer the following questions.
1. Replicate the data into an Excel spreadsheet. Now compute percentage for each of the employment brackets by year and residential area in San Antonio (note that the total should be used as your denominator). Attach a copy of the created excel spreadsheet.
2. Use the percentages you computed in 1 to create a bar chart for the four employment groups of the East Side, West Side, South Side, and Leon Valley, respectively, by year 2000 and 2010 (separate charts are acceptable but difficult to use for the questions shown below). In addition, label each bar to identify the residential area, year, employment category and the percentile value for that specific bar.
3. Use the percentages and bar charts you created in 1 and 2, identify and report which residential area, using all four employment brackets, has the most employed respondents, by percentage, in San Antonio in 2000 and 2010, respectively (one sentence).

4a. Use the percentages from 1 and 2 to determine which employment category has the largest increase or decrease between 2000 and 2010 for each of the four residential areas.
4b. In a few sentences summarize employment changes overtime from 2000 to 2010 as identified in 4a for all four residential areas.
5. Write a small paragraph (less than 10 sentences) to discuss if there is an employment inequality in San Antonio by residential area, and whether or not this inequality has improved or worsened over the 10 year span. Be sure to use numerical values to support your arguments.
