Geography Deserts: State and Regional Variation in the Formal Opportunity to Learn Geography in the United States, 2005-2015
Jones, Mark C.; Luna, Marcos
Journal of Geography, v118 n2 p88-100 2019
The formal opportunity to learn geography in the United States is unevenly distributed across space, creating possible geography deserts. Data on the number of exams taken in Advanced Placement Human Geography (APHG) and bachelor's degrees earned in geography are mapped at the state and regional scales. Normalized rates are ranked and grouped into quintiles. For APHG exams, states in the southeastern region of the United States are in the uppermost quintiles while states in the northeastern region are in the lowermost quintiles. The pattern for bachelor's degrees in geography is somewhat the spatial inverse of that for APHG.
