Diversity in Family and Household Patterns

Diversity in Family and Household Patterns

This module is designed to illustrate differences in family and household composition patterns for different groups based on race/ethnicity and social class. It also serves as a review of key methodological concepts introduced in the first part of the course. The pdf file contains: learning objectives, data sets, a methodological review, a theoretical review and recent historic trends. This is a great lesson plan for either a sociology, or even an applied statistics, course.
