Comparative Politics of the British Commonwealth

Map Assignment 2019

Question One (4 marks each – 92 marks in total)

Please show in the world map – a map will be distributed in the class on Tuesday – locations of the countries listed below.

Below is the current list of the Commonwealth countries with its population size larger than approximately 5 million. As of year 2018, the Commonwealth contains 53 member-countries.

Question Two (8 marks)

Please categorize the countries listed below into four groups in terms of GDP per capita (nominal)*.

Category 1: High income countries – GDP per capita exceeding 12,000 US$

Category 2: Upper middle income countries – GDP per capita exceeding 4,000 US$ but below 12,000US$

Category 3: Lower middle-income countries – GDP per capita exceeding 1,000$ but below 4,000$

Category4: Low income countries – GDP per capita below 1,000$

*Different institutions calculate GDP per capita (nominal) somewhat differently, so, it could be said that there is no single set of precise answers for this question. This is why I allotted only 8 marks for this question. Having said that, it should still be possible to come up with an approximate categorization. I will give 8 marks if you answer is ‘approximately’ fine.
