Question Description

I need help with a Sociology question. All explanations and answers will be used to help me learn.

Using the same topic that you identified in the first writing assignment and further researched in the second, compose a short (two pages) write-up exploring the data that exists on your topic. In about 2-3 pages (double spaced, 12 point font, 1 inch margins, MLA format) Address the following:

(1) Where did you find the data?

(2) How and when was the data collected?

(3) What does the data document?

(4) How does the data relate to your topic?

(5) What are the limitations of the data?

You might look at one of the following sites:

The General Social Survey

The World Values Survey

The CDC

http://www.cdc.gov/

The U.S. Census

The Population Reference Bureau

Gapminder.org

The U.S. Department of Education

The Uniform Crime Reporting Program

GIS

If your topic is so novel that there is little data on the subject, write a short proposed data section. In other words, what data would you like to see on this topic…? How should it be collected (methods, sample, sites, duration)…? What do you think the data yield might uncover…?

Your Grade for this Assignment is based on the following:

Inclusion & Explanation of the Data 15 Points

Discussion of the Relationship to your Topic 10 Points

Critical Assessment of the data (limitations) 10 Points

Formatting (ASA Writing Style, 2-3 Pages, Works Cited) 10 Points
