Quanitative ReasoningConsider this:
You are a longtime resident of community X. Over the years and decades you have watched your neighborhood undergo noticeable changes in the population of residents. With that qualitative knowledge, you decide to investigate what the actual changes have been by locating and analyzing Census data. Using this data you write a short article about the changes to submit to your local newspaper and create an Infographic that more visually tells the story to accompany the piece.
Using the data and resources â€ Think critically and sociologically about populations and changes:
ï‚· Could it be the result of changing immigration patterns
ï‚· Has the economy of the city improved
ï‚· Has there been a “gentrification” effect
ï‚· Be very mindful of all the possibilities to best investigate the supportive sources
Use Social Explorer through the Baruch Newman Library (databases) to create two (2) meaningful maps for your analysis
ï‚· The maps should be relevant to the story you are looking to tell
o i.e. If you are writing about race, then the maps should be about race
ï‚· Maps can be exported as image files that you can then add to your infographic
Use the Census or ACS Data to produce at least three (3) charts/graphics for the infographic
ï‚· Graphic means, that you could use simply monotone images to represent data, i.e. male/female
silhouettes, house silhouettes, family silhouettes, arrows, etc.
ï‚· Focus on demographic data
o If you find information from sources about business influences on the population, make sure to cite these sources in the narrative
Introduce why you decided to investigate the select community
Discuss the first impressions of the data on the neighborhood
a. What from the data strikes you
3. Walk the reader through a story of how the numbers tell this story of change.
Integrate the statistics meaningfully throughout the narrative
Use sources for supportive evidence – avoiding absolute causation; think influence
i. See Step 6 of Preparation
c. Optional: You may add qualitative knowledge you may have (i.e. quote from a parent or
colleague who’s witnessed the changes over the decades), but avoid using prejudiced
statements or sweeping generalizations
The article should conclude with some language about the implications of population changes
(positive/negative) for the given community
Are the changes good
Will only time tell
Why should we care about these changes
The article should generally read as a story of change told by numbers and supported by critical analysis
