a short write up on using data in sociology

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 U.S. Census


The Population Reference Bureau




The U.S. Department of Education


The Uniform Crime Reporting Program




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…?
