Url: http://www.ssdan.net/chip/modules/new/Leiter_raceincome.pdf
Creator: Leiter, Jeff
Publisher: North Carolina State University
Description: This module, created by Jeff Leiter of North Carolina State University, explores what people earn from their jobs. People obviously care a lot about earnings and this example with show with social statistics how this effects their livelihoods. The module asks five different questions, they are: What part of the population has any other source of income besides their jobs? How do differences in peoples' earnings tell us about how their contributions to our society differ? To what extent does the quality of a person's life depend on their job earnings? Would we have a better society if differences or inequality in earnings were limited? What reasons for differences in earnings do you think are acceptable in a just society? The module contains charts and graphs to best illustrate its use of social statistics.
