Dear Ranking Member Davis:
The American Sociological Association appreciates the opportunity to share our views about the U.S. Census Bureau’s American Community Survey (ACS), an innovation that has greatly benefited social science researchers, policy makers, and the communities they both serve.
While previous research has documented the existence of a racial hierarchy within the dating world with white women and men on top, a new study finds that in certain circumstances multiracial daters are actually seen as more desirable than individuals from all other racial groups, including whites.
At the American Sociological Association's 110th Annual Meeting, Chicago will be the subject of several regional spotlight sessions in which leading sociologists will present research on and discuss topics related to the city, including public education, social inequality, criminal justice, migration, and gentrification.
Greater childhood adversity helps to explain why black men are less healthy than white men, and some of this effect appears to operate through childhood adversity’s enduring influence on the relationships black men have as adults, according to a new study in the March issue of the Journal of Health and Social Behavior.
Growing up in poverty or being abused by parents can lead to accumulated health problems later in life, according to research from Purdue University.
"Childhood disadvantage has long-term health consequences—much longer than most of us realize," said Kenneth F. Ferraro, distinguished professor of sociology. "A novel aspect of this study is that childhood disadvantage was linked to the onset of new health problems decades later."
A new study finds that more than half of all "children" in the U.S. either misperceive or reject their parents' political party affiliations.
Children of undocumented Mexican immigrants have a significantly higher risk of behavior problems than their co-ethnic counterparts with documented or naturalized citizen mothers, according to a new study.
The difficulties come in two forms: sadness or social withdrawal — what the authors refer to as internalizing behavior problems — and issues such as aggressiveness towards others — which the authors call externalizing behavior problems.
People who earn a college degree before getting married are much less likely to become obese than those who graduate from college after getting married, according to a new study.
People’s educational attainment influences their level of physical activity both during the week and on weekends, according to a study whose authors include two University of Kansas researchers.
The study finds that, on average, those with a college degree are more active on Saturdays and Sundays than on a typical weekday — whereas for people without a high school degree, the opposite is true.
