Principal Investigator(s):


Data-Driven Learning Guides are a collection of instructional exercises that can be used to enhance teaching of core concepts in the social sciences. This learning guide investigates the relationship between demographic characteristics and different forms of civic participation in China. Research questions that can be explored using this learning guide include: what the relationship is between certain demographic categories and local participation in China, which forms of participation are most popular among Chinese citizens in the countryside, whenter rural Chinese citizens in 1990 were interested in local elections, and how participation in rural China differs from participation in Chinese cities. Crosstabulations are used for the analyses.
