Age and Attitudes about the Rights of Homosexuals: A Data-Driven Learning Guide Go to Resource


The issue of same-sex marriage is just one of several that help to illustrate the ongoing struggle of homosexuals to claim equality in civil rights. Part of the problem faced by homosexuals rests in levels of public support for certain legal rights for homosexuals. We will consider attitudes toward three different rights: same-sex marriage; legal adoption of a child by homosexuals; and homosexuals being allowed to teach in public schools.

This guide will examine trends in attitudes regarding the rights of homosexuals in the United States from the early 1990s through 2007. Frequencies, crosstabs, and comparison of means tests will be used for the analyses.
