To do this, you will perform secondary data analysis by visiting the US Census Bureau's American FactFinder. Identify the various social and economic characteristics (i.e., education, population, housing, race, gender, age, income, etc.) of this locale. You can also check government websites for your state, county or city for data. Then, identify your findings of social stratification or social inequality found in this locale as highlighted in the reading in the text, Sociology: Beyond Common Sense, for Week Three.
Your demographic report should follow the following structure:
Introduction (including the locality chosen and general socio-economic info on your locality)
At least five body paragraphs presenting the social or economic characteristics and specific data for the locality (please state both numbers and percentages if available)
At least two body paragraphs describing any findings that you have related to social stratification and social inequality (use your text, Sociology: Beyond Common Sense as reference).
Conclusion (summarize the socio-economic status of your locality based on your findings and related discussions on social stratification and social inequality )
The paper must be four to five pages in length and formatted according to APA style. You must use at least five resources from the Census website. You must use your text to support your work on social stratification and social inequality. Cite your resources in text and on the reference page.
