What issues and situations would make it okay for Catalonia to seek independence? Would this be possible in the USA?
Based on my research, I think that most people would say yes, Catalonia should be its own country because of how badly they have been treated both economically and socially:
Economically - because the government is not paying Catalonia its equal amount of money so Catalonia is paying more than the government is willing to give up.
Socially- because Franco would not let them speak Catalan or practice Catalan culture.
In addition to my research on the web, I decided to do a survey to ask the people of Spain their opinion. In order to do my global comparison, I also needed to make a survey for the people in the U.S.

Steps I took to create my surveys:
1. created questions
2. translate them to Spanish
3. find survey tool
4. created the survey in the tool
64% of the people that did my survey were females.
76% of the people were under 40 years old.
44% of the people that I surveyed were from Madrid and 40% were from Andalusia.
92% said no, Catalonia should not be independent.
Results: USA Survey
64% that I surveyed in the USA are female.
72% of the people were under 40 years old.
80% of the people I surveyed were from the southeast.
68% of the people that I surveyed said no.
92% said no, Catalonia should not be independent.

Analysis:

I think that in Spain they answered the way they did because of their history. In their responses, a lot of them said things like "...because it has always been part of Spain...".

Spain was created in 1492 as a monarchy and stayed that way for over 500 years. For them and their history, they don't see why it would be necessary for this to change. Even if that means that the Catalonians are not happy.




68% of the people that I surveyed said no.

Analysis:

In the USA, I think the people answered the way they did because we are a democracy and we think and believe that all states have equality and a lot of them said things like this "...states are part of the union...and part of the national government".

They said that because they think all states are treated equally, because that is the goal of our democracy. So they think there is no reason really for a state to leave the USA if they have their rights and there is freedom of speech, they have the whole package.



Hypothesis:
Based on my research, I think that most people would say yes, Catalonia should be its own country because of how badly they have been treated both economically and socially:
Economically - because the government is not paying Catalonia its equal amount of money so Catalonia is paying more than the government is willing to give up.
Socially- because Franco would not let them speak Catalan or practice Catalan culture.

Was my Hypothesis right or wrong? -
WRONG

What I Learned:
The main thing I learned from this experience is that people from different parts of the world think differently than others. When I first made my hypothesis I thought the people of Spain would think the same way as us, but I was wrong. Either because of their government or society, there will always be different perspectives.
