Across the United States, communities are experiencing increases in the frequency and severity of natural hazards. The pervasiveness and upward trajectory of these damages are worrisome enough, but equally disconcerting are the social inequalities they can leave in their wake. To examine these inequalities, the authors linked county-level damage data to a random sample of American households. The authors visualize the pervasiveness of natural hazards as well as their influence on racial wealth gaps over time.
Previous research shows that married and cohabiting individuals are happier and enjoy greater levels of psychological well-being than single individuals. However, most of this research relies on data from intraracial—mostly white—couples, and less is known about the emotional health outcomes of individuals in interracial partnerships. This study uses fixed-effects regression to examine depressive symptoms among those transitioning into intraracial and interracial relationships in the National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent to Adult Health.
Street Ethnography: The Manhattan Nobody Knows
Street ethnography is a highly complex undertaking. Embedded in the texture of everyday life, the sociological issues are largely emergent, and revealed through social observation that leads to the rendering of people, places, and social situations.
The Manhattan Nobody Knows is a perfect example of this methodology. The author walked hundreds of miles through the borough, and spontaneously engaged people in impromptu conversations about their lives, observing and representing their everyday lives.
