12 Analyze the numbers above and make five
statements about jobs in New France.
(Largest occupation, type of economy).
Compare New France to present day Canada using some of the ideas from questions 1-12. Note
that the above is in percentage form, so you will have to convert some of the New France
statistics to match.

You make up what to investigate and compare.   How you are to show this depends on your
teacher.
