Social norms define what is deviant; nothing about an act in and of itself is ever deviant without surrounding social norms.

Deviance, by its definition, is fluid in nature. Social norms define what is deviant; nothing about an act in and of itself is ever deviant without surrounding social norms.
To examine this, please look at the following list of what people considered deviant in 1964
After reviewing the list answer the following questions:
Which item on the ‘What is deviant’ resource, table 1-1 struck you as odd?
Which item was you least surprised to see in the 1964 list?
What do these items tell us about social norms in 1964?
If this survey were to be conducted in 2019, which items would remain on the list? Which would go?
What ‘new’ deviance do you think we have in society in 2019?
How is your assumed 2019 list similar to the 1964 list? How is it different?
What do your two lists tell you abobciut the role of deviance in society?

Report Assignment:
Sociological research has the potential to promote social justice. Research and data can be used to highlight how inequalities organize society and identify circumstances that reduce inequalities. You will be tasked with using data from the General Social Survey to write an applied or practice-oriented research report intended to secure grant funding to reduce inequality. This assignment builds on Quantitative Research Proposal
Guidelines:
The major elements of this project include:
Abstract
Think of this as a one-paragraph summary of your report. A reader should be able to read this and understand the purpose of your report, the problem being addressed, research methods, and recommendations. (hint: write this last)
Introduction/Statement of the Problem – *use existing research for support
Address all of the following questions:
What is the problem/issue?
What are the potential causes?
Who is affected and what is at stake?
Why it is worth researching?
What is your research question?
How do you plan to research the topic?
Methods
Describe the strategy of data collection, explain why the specific methodology was utilized, and discuss the techniques of data analysis (hint: look at the GSS material provided to you).
Discuss where the data is from and when it was collected
Give the total sample size
Description of the dependent variable (including the level of measurement and an appropriate measure of central tendency)
Provide any descriptive statistics or tables that you feel would help the reader understand the data and what you are investigating (i.e., describe frequencies of your variables)
If you recoded any of your variables define the new variables and explain why the grouping was theoretically appropriate.
Description of the independent variable
Provide any descriptive statistics or tables that you feel would help the reader understand the data and what you are investigating (i.e., describe frequencies of your variables)
If you recoded any of your variables define the new variables and explain why the grouping was theoretically appropriate.
Specify a hypothesis—provide a description of how you expect these two variables to be related to each other in a causal relationship and why (provide your reasoning for why your independent variable might cause your dependent variable
Findings
Run frequencies for each of the variables so that you understand their distributions
Examine bivariate relationships (run cross tabs)
Determine whether each relationship is significant
Provide the results from the test and provide the technical interpretation.
Provide a substantive interpretation of the test.
Describe caveats to your conclusions, including why you might want to include other variables.
Implications/Policy Recommendations
Identify 2-4 distinct recommendations. Each recommendation must be feasible, based on strong evidence, the solution to the specific problem you have identified
List of references
References should be formatted according to ASA or APA guidelines.

When being placed in these decision making places, i found that i was stressed and it was hard to make decision verses what i want and need.

Use the material given and respond to each person separately. DO NOT CREATE AN ESSAY WITH all 2 DISCUSSIONS/ RESPONSES IN IT. Each response should be no less than 150 words on its own and no citing is needed just respond to each individual discussion post and let me know which discussion response is for what person so that I know which one to put under each person’s discussion on Blackboard.

Discussion #5
After playing the Spent simulation, I was able to make it through the month with $583 and I encountered multiple different situations that I had not previously thought about. For example, the simulations added toothaches, children, back pain, etc. to make it harder to save money but also make it more realistic because life is imperfect. If I have $250 left and I think I’m good for the week that could all be taken away if I need to pay $250 dollars for a root canal or something, and then I’m screwed. This also applies for a doctor’s visit for back pain, or my child needs some sort of medical care that is not covered by insurance. Due to all these variables out of my control I decided to play the game multiple times (hence the toothache, back pain, child problems, etc.) and each time I beat the 30 days but with different amounts of money left. One of the games I purposefully was very free with my money and ended up running out within 9 days which is a truly scary thought. These multiple attempts show just how random and unpredictable life can be at times, and how you must always stay vigilant in order to avoid going under. I feel like I learned nothing particularly new about poverty from this exercise because my family lived in poverty in Chicago, Detroit, and Philly, and so they told me all the hardships they had to go through from working 16 hour shifts, to not eating 3 meals a day just to save a few dollars, and so I have a great respect to all those living in poverty and even more to those that sacrifice so much to get out of it. I believe this also gives me a foot up incase I’m ever also stuck in poverty because I have some knowledge on how to slowly help myself get out of it. This simulation simply helped me put what I already knew into a version I can see and interact with and for that I feel like everyone should at least try this simple exercise at least once.

Discussion 5
Wow, all I can say was this was one of the best activities to show this real life process. I know growing up, my mom had to make difficult decisions like this, but it’s so hard, especially staring at the balance in the bank account. I ended up macking it thought the month with only $25 left, and on the last day I lost my job. If this was to keep going, like real life, I know it would be so stressful. Some things I saw that I never really thought about was how much all the insurance you need, from car, to dental (which I found out is not always offered through all health insurances), and more. I decided to try again, and the second time I tried to spend more, which was not a good idea (I just wanted to see how long I could go) and only made it into 15 days. One other thing I never thought about was making time for family and job. One situation was choosing between paying for my child to go into gifted education, or work, which I got a strike for missing work. From this experience, not only did I learn how hard it is to make these decisions, but also how so many people have different choices. Since I this twice, they both had totally different senarios, which cost more for each. When being placed in these decision making places, I found that I was stressed and it was hard to make decision verses what I want and need. I was offered to get a gym membership to help relieve stress, but knew I couldn’t due to how many bills I needed to pay and only had $100 in my bank account. I have relized how greatful I am to have so much support and appriciate my mom who did this all alone while I was growing up, and still managed to give me the worlbcid, when I knew it was hard.
