I’m working on a sociology writing question and need an explanation to help me learn.
In this course, we are interested in how sociologists study a broad range of topics using different methods to collect and analyze their data. Each of you will write a research paper based on your own analysis of empirical data. You have the choice of writing a:
a.) QUANTITATIVE PAPER based on existing data from the General Social Survey (GSS).
a.) minimum 7- to 9-pages, however feel free to go over this limit – I am less concerned about students going over the page length and will evaluate you on how well you address each of the guidelines for each section of your paper (see below for evaluation rubric).
b.) double-spaced (unless otherwise noted) c.) one-inch margins
d.) 12-point Times New Roman font
e.) page numbers
f.) headings for different sections (i.e. Introduction, Data, Conclusions and Implications, etc.)
g.) [optional] formal reference page following exact ASA style (not included in the page count)
Guidelines for a QUANTITATIVE Paper (GSS Data)
You should introduce your paper topic to your reader by outlining the following information:
variable X and variable Y?” or “Does X vary by Y?”)
one for each independent variable.
Generally, it is easier to compose an introduction after you have completed your “Results and Discussion” section.
This section provides background information about your dataset. You should discuss the following:
a.) Briefly describe your data, the General Social Survey (GSS) (include the unit of analysis, the time dimension, and the sample).
b.) Identify your dependent and independent variables and explain why you selected each of these variables. How do these variables operationalize your topic?
c.) For each variable, provide the following description: the variable name, the exact wording of the survey question, the variable attributes, and the level of measurement (i.e. nominal, ordinal, etc.).
collapsed the attributes, and the level of measurement of the modified variable (if different from the original).
Results and Discussion
This is the heart of your paper, the section in which you clarify your topic and answer your research questions using evidence.
Include at least three cross-tabulations using three different independent variables and the same dependent variable. For each cross-tabulation make sure to:
Conclusion and Implications
You close the paper in this final section by doing the following:
a.) Restate your research question.
three cross-tabulations inform your research question.
