Apply the knowledge about conceptualization, operationalization, measurement, and sampling to examine a “fuzzy” sociological concept. Each of these concepts can be broken down into smaller aspects or dimensions to be studied. Select one of the following concepts to complete this activity.
- Housing insecurity/homelessness
- Gender discrimination
- Stereotypes in media
Pick one concept and discuss the follow using PARAGRAPHS:
a. What would be some appropriate dimensions you could examine? Discuss at least 3 different dimensions. Of those 3, pick one and propose a research question that explores this dimension.
b. Using that dimension, propose some indicators you could use to measure this dimension. In other words, how would you measure this dimension to answer your research question?
c. Discuss the sampling of your study – how you would select your observations/data?
o What are your units of analysis?
o How many observations would you include?
o How would they be selected? What sampling method would you use and why? [If you select a non-probability sampling method, be specific about which one.] What would be the benefits and drawbacks for that specific sampling method?
hat has been under ethnocentrism since colonial times. In this case, we have the first nation people who are the native people and the immigrant who came to trade with the native people. Until today the conflict on the territory which the native and the European people share is unclear as the treaties that were made at the time were not clear to the native people. Treaties are agreements that are made by two groups to make peace between them. In this case, it is between the first nation people and the Europeans settlements. Unceded land is a territory which is a large section of British Columbia, Montreal and other parts of Canada. It is the land that was neither acquired or surrendered to the crown. It is also known as the crown land. The territory belongs to the first nation people who agreed to share it with the Europeans but not to give it up to them. However, the efforts being done to bring the people together and come up with understanding on the unceded territory, the Canadian government has failed as agreed terms on the Royal Proclamation act of 1763. Following that my opinion on the claim about the treaties that weren’t clear to the first nation is the government of Canada should compensate and amend or interpret it in a modern way. Solutions should not be from 200 years old ‘agreement’ between parties that they don’t exist anymore. However, The government needs to provide drastic measures so that the treaty rights are more clearly defined. This will help people from both parties to get a clear look of the treaty and a solution can be made thus helping both the aboriginal people and the government as well.>GET ANSWER
