Social Change: A Data-Driven Learning Guide (ICPSR 355) RSS

Principal Investigator(s):

Summary:

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 differential impact of social change on three generations of Americans in the 1970s. Research questions that can be explored using this learning guide include: how social change may affect people's attitudes, norms, values, and behaviors, whether social change impacts social groups differently and what might explain these differences, does rapid socia change create anomie, and are the affects of anomie the same for all social groups. Crosstabulations and comparison of means tests are used for the analyses.
