Understanding Housing Patterns in the United States part of SSDAN:Activities
In this activity, students investigate housing patterns in the United States using data from the 2000 U.S. Census. Students analyze data concerning homeownership and housing type to learn about the distribution of homeownership and housing in the United States. They also conduct crosstabular analysis to determine how stage of life course and race/ethnicity influence homeownership and housing type. Students are required to discuss the implication of their findings and related them to concept frequently discussed in an urban sociology course.
