SOCI 120: Survey Research and Statistical Analysis

SOCI 120: Welcome

Welcome

Library Workshop Goals

Welcome! In the speed workshop this week, you will have the opportunity to:

  • Identify different databases for different sociology topics
  • Locate and use tools for finding different sources of information

Workshop Goal: Find 2 sources to kickstart background research for your survey project.

Research Questions

For your question, distill it down to 2-4 key concepts. 

 

A) Does the amount of activities that parents are involved in (i.e. religious activities, raising children, providing for the family) contribute or take away from the idea of a stable home life and deviate from the satisfaction and overall happiness that parents have?

 

B) I will be searching for gender inequalities in “breadwinner” and “caretaker” roles. The research question that I am going to ask is are gender roles in family dynamics financially reliant on one sex more than another? If so, is maintenance of the house (cooking, cleaning, taking care of children) more reliant on one sex more than another? What are the implications of these trends? 

 

C) I will be looking at the perceived level of happiness between college-aged males and females. The research question I will be asking is, Does gender have an overall impact on how one many perceive happiness in their life?
 
 

D) This research proposal will focus on dynamics within family, specifically on the correlation between household labor division and marriage satisfaction. I will look into the impact that traditional gender roles have when it gets to household labor divisions and how this contributes to the level of marital satisfaction.
