SOC Ch. 1 Notes
Case Study: Street Science
Sudhir Venkatesh studied the social life of a public housing
project in Chicago. He discovered that the community
sustained itself “off the books” and that it had its own set of
rules and behavior. Venkatesh became closely involved
with a gang leader of the project and used this closeness to
further study the rules of the community. His book Off the
Books: The Underground Economy of the Urban Poor
presented poverty in a more realistic light than previous
studies.

Section 3 at a Glance
Modern Perspectives
• Sociology employs three major theoretical perspectives—
functionalism, conflict, and interactionism.
• The functionalist perspective focuses on order and
stability, the conflict perspective focuses on power
relations, and the interactionist perspective focuses on how
individuals interact with one another in everyday life.
• Sociologists employ two levels of analysis:
macrosociology, which focuses on large-scale systems or
society as a whole, and microsociology, which focuses on
small-group settings.
Modern Perspectives
Main Idea
Sociology employs three major theoretical perspectives—
functionalism, which focuses on order and stability; conflict, which focuses on
power relations; and interactionism, which focuses on how individuals
interact with one another in everyday life.

Reading Focus
• In what ways do the three major theoretical perspectives in sociology differ
in their focus?
• How do the three theoretical perspectives differ in terms of their levels of
analysis?
How do sociologists
view what goes on in
your school?
Major Theoretical Perspectives

Sociologists use theories to describe the relationships
among different elements of society. A theoretical
perspective is a group of such theories. Three major
theoretical perspectives form the basis of modern
sociology.
Functionalist Perspective
View of society as a set of interrelated parts that work together
to produce a stable social system
• Dysfunction
– A negative consequence of an element of society
• Manifest function

– The intended and recognized consequence of an element of society
• Latent function
– Unintended and unrecognized consequence of an element of society
Conflict Perspective
• Conflict perspective
– Focuses on elements that create competition and change
• Feminist perspective
– A version of the conflict perspective that describes inequalities based
on gender

Interactionist Perspective
• Interactionist perspective
– Focuses on the interaction of individuals with each other
• Symbol
– Anything that represents something else
• Symbolic interaction
– Using symbols while interacting with others

Reading Check
Summarize
What are the three sociological perspectives and on what does each perspective
focus?

Answer: functionalist—how the set of interrelated parts
of society work together to produce a stable social
system; conflict—the forces in society that promote
competition and change; interactionist—the
interactions of individuals in society
Levels of Analysis
• Macrosociology
• The study of large-scale systems or societies as a whole
• The study of long-term problems
• Microsociology
• The study of small-group settings

• The study of everyday interactions among group members
• Globalization
• A process of creating a world-wide system of interactions, larger
than any one society
Reading Check
Contrast
What is the difference between macrosociology and microsociology?

Answer: Macrosociology looks at large-scale systems or
society as a whole; microsociology looks at small-group
settings and the everyday face-to-face interactions
among group members
Current Research in Sociology
The Spread of Hip-Hop
Global interactions are a new topic of study for sociologists. Studying
the spread of hip-hop music reveals aspects of global interactions.
• Hip-hop began as a movement
among American youth.

• Local youths have put their own
spin on the music.

• Hip-hop has spread to all points
of the globe along with
movies, sports, and fashion.

• Some consider hip-hop to be
the sound of the world’s streets.

• Big business has spread
aspects of the hip-hop
lifestyle, but adherents
understand it as a method to
question mainstream values.
Thinking Critically
• Why do some sociologists consider hip-hop a global youth
movement?
• Many studies of cultural spread suggest that American culture
often overpowers local culture. Why does the spread of hiphop not fit this description?
Section 4 at a Glance
Conducting Sociological Research
• Sociologists employ a seven-step process when they conduct
research.
• Research approaches available to sociologists include survey,
analysis of existing documents, observation, and experiment.
Conducting Sociological Research
Main Idea
Sociologists use several approaches to conducting research. Regardless of the
approaches they use, all sociologists follow a seven-step research process.

Reading Focus
• What are the seven steps in the research process?
• How do sociologists uncover causation and correlation?
• What basic research methods do sociologists employ?
• How do ethical issues affect sociological research?
How do sociologists
conduct research?
The Research Process
Sociologists use the scientific method to conduct their
research.
Scientific Method
The scientific method is an objective, logical, and systematic way of
collecting and analyzing data.
A hypothesis is a statement that predicts what the outcome of an
experiment will be.
Reading Check
Sequence
What are the seven steps
in the research process?

Answer: define the problem, review the literature, form
a hypothesis, choose a research design, collect the
data, analyze the data, present conclusions
Causation and Correlation
Causation

Correlation

• Every event has at least one cause.

• Correlation is the first step in
proving causation.

• Variables, or traits, of a social
group help determine why an event
occurs the way it does.
• Causal relationships exist when a
change in one variable causes
change in another variable.
• Independent variables cause
changes in dependent variables.

• A correlation exists when a change
in one variable is regularly
associated with a change in
another variable.

• Correlations can have a causal
relationship or not.

Evidence of a correlation is not evidence of a causation.
Reading Check
Contrast
How do positive correlations and
negative correlations differ?

Answer: positive—both variables change at the same
time; negative—variables change in opposite directions
Basic Research Methods
Survey
• Survey method is used for large numbers of people
• Researchers use questionnaires and interviews
• The data available in a short amount of time
• The answers may not be accurate
• Researchers use samples, or small groups

Analysis of Existing Sources
• Historical method uses information from the past
• Content analysis counts uses of words or symbols
Observational Studies
• Researchers watch people in detached observation.
• Researchers become part of the group being studied in participant
observation.
• A case study uses information gathered during observation.

Experiments
• In an experiment, the data is gathered under controlled conditions.
• Researchers use a control group and an experimental group.
• Information gathered is somewhat limited because of the controlled
conditions.
Statistical Analysis
• Researchers use mathematical data.
• Statistical analysis is the analyzing of collected data to determine the kind
of relationship between two or more variables.
• The mode is the most common number in the data.
• The mean is the average of the numbers in the data.
• The median is the number that divides the data into two equal parts.
Reading Check
Summarize
What research approaches
might a case study employ?

Answer: surveys, observation, analysis of existing
sources, and experiments employing statistical analysis
Ethical Issues in Research
• Specific rules set by the American Sociological Association

• Rules focus on:
– Confidentiality
– Deception

– Informed consent
• Must protect the rights of subjects
Reading Check
Find the Main Idea
What ethical issues do
sociological researchers face?

Answer: confidentiality, the possible use of
deception, and informed consent

Soc Ch 1 notes

  • 1. SOC Ch. 1 Notes
  • 2. Case Study: Street Science Sudhir Venkatesh studied the social life of a public housing project in Chicago. He discovered that the community sustained itself “off the books” and that it had its own set of rules and behavior. Venkatesh became closely involved with a gang leader of the project and used this closeness to further study the rules of the community. His book Off the Books: The Underground Economy of the Urban Poor presented poverty in a more realistic light than previous studies.

  • 27. Modern Perspectives Main Idea Sociology employs three major theoretical perspectives— functionalism, which focuses on order and stability; conflict, which focuses on power relations; and interactionism, which focuses on how individuals interact with one another in everyday life. Reading Focus • In what ways do the three major theoretical perspectives in sociology differ in their focus? • How do the three theoretical perspectives differ in terms of their levels of analysis?
  • 28. How do sociologists view what goes on in your school?

  • 35. Reading Check Contrast What is the difference between macrosociology and microsociology? Answer: Macrosociology looks at large-scale systems or society as a whole; microsociology looks at small-group settings and the everyday face-to-face interactions among group members
  • 36. Current Research in Sociology The Spread of Hip-Hop Global interactions are a new topic of study for sociologists. Studying the spread of hip-hop music reveals aspects of global interactions. • Hip-hop began as a movement among American youth. • Local youths have put their own spin on the music. • Hip-hop has spread to all points of the globe along with movies, sports, and fashion. • Some consider hip-hop to be the sound of the world’s streets. • Big business has spread aspects of the hip-hop lifestyle, but adherents understand it as a method to question mainstream values.
  • 37.
  • 38.
  • 39. Thinking Critically • Why do some sociologists consider hip-hop a global youth movement? • Many studies of cultural spread suggest that American culture often overpowers local culture. Why does the spread of hiphop not fit this description?

Regardless of the approaches they use, all sociologists follow a seven-step research process. Reading Focus • What are the seven steps in the research process? • How do sociologists uncover causation and correlation? • What basic research methods do sociologists employ? • How do ethical issues affect sociological research?
  • 43. The Research Process Sociologists use the scientific method to conduct their research. Scientific Method The scientific method is an objective, logical, and systematic way of collecting and analyzing data. A hypothesis is a statement that predicts what the outcome of an experiment will be.
  • 44.
  • 45. Reading Check Sequence What are the seven steps in the research process? Answer: define the problem, review the literature, form a hypothesis, choose a research design, collect the data, analyze the data, present conclusions
  • 46. Causation and Correlation Causation Correlation • Every event has at least one cause. • Correlation is the first step in proving causation. • Variables, or traits, of a social group help determine why an event occurs the way it does. • Causal relationships exist when a change in one variable causes change in another variable. • Independent variables cause changes in dependent variables. • A correlation exists when a change in one variable is regularly associated with a change in another variable. • Correlations can have a causal relationship or not. Evidence of a correlation is not evidence of a causation.
  • 47.
  • 48. Reading Check Contrast How do positive correlations and negative correlations differ? Answer: positive—both variables change at the same time; negative—variables change in opposite directions
  • 49. Basic Research Methods Survey • Survey method is used for large numbers of people • Researchers use questionnaires and interviews • The data available in a short amount of time • The answers may not be accurate • Researchers use samples, or small groups Analysis of Existing Sources • Historical method uses information from the past • Content analysis counts uses of words or symbols
  • 50. Observational Studies • Researchers watch people in detached observation. • Researchers become part of the group being studied in participant observation. • A case study uses information gathered during observation. Experiments • In an experiment, the data is gathered under controlled conditions. • Researchers use a control group and an experimental group. • Information gathered is somewhat limited because of the controlled conditions.
  • 51. Statistical Analysis • Researchers use mathematical data. • Statistical analysis is the analyzing of collected data to determine the kind of relationship between two or more variables. • The mode is the most common number in the data. • The mean is the average of the numbers in the data. • The median is the number that divides the data into two equal parts.
  • 52.
  • 53.
  • 54. Reading Check Summarize What research approaches might a case study employ? Answer: surveys, observation, analysis of existing sources, and experiments employing statistical analysis
  • 55. Ethical Issues in Research • Specific rules set by the American Sociological Association • Rules focus on: – Confidentiality – Deception – Informed consent • Must protect the rights of subjects
