SOC 242 Methods of Social Research Prof. Younts Fall 2014 Homework Exercise #6: Unobtrusive Research/Content Analysis (Due 12/9) Bring one copy of your final lab report to hand in at the beginning of the lab. This lab is designed to provide you with a small amount of hands-on experience with content analysis. Your task is to design a quantitative, descriptive content analysis project that will allow you to make statements regarding the relative social status of men and women in contemporary U.S. society. Specifically, you want to determine whether and to what extent men are higher status than 1 women in the U.S. Examples might include indications that men are generally assumed to be more competent, more worthy of esteem and prestige, more valued members of society, more influential, or that their ideas, contributions and opinions are more correct or more highly valued.

Your lab report should completely address each of the following: 1. Describe in detail the social artifact that you have chosen to content analyze in terms of gender and status. Why did you select this artifact? Provide a clear and strong justification for using this particular artifact to investigate this research question. 2. Sampling design: Describe in detail a sampling plan appropriate for generating a valid description of the status of men versus women in contemporary U.S. society. Identify the unit of analysis, unit of observation, population or sampling universe, sampling frame, and describe exactly how you would select your sample (the sampling design and how you would implement it to select the particular cases that would be included in your sample). You do NOT need to select a sample, just describe how you would do it. 3. Operationalization (coding scheme):…
