Be sure to explain why you think it is a good way or not a good way. Some keywords to include are: functions, dysfunction, moralCompare and contrast race, ethnicity, sex, and gender.

Which one do you think has caused more inequality in our country? Please use statistics from lecture and the book or from the provided link below. Do you think if you used different statistics your answer might be different? (Hint: Open the attached .pdf below and read the section entitled “Race and Hispanic Origin”. Then look at Figure 2 in the same document. That should give you all the information you need to make a direct comparison for the year 2015 in terms on income.)Describe the differences and similarities between folkways, mores, and laws. Provide a definition and example of each. Also, discuss what anomie is and its connection to norms. Be sure to discuss what types of events would create anomie on a national or worldwide scale.

Ms. DeNavas-Walt retired in 2015. She was the primary author of the income s
­ ection
of the Current Population Reports, Series P-60, for 25 years. Ms. DeNavas-Walt spent
her career committed to providing timely and accurate estimates of income and
­earnings and to measuring change in these national-level estimates. Her expertise,
dedication, and guidance will be greatly missed.
The Social, Economic, and Housing Statistics Division of the Census Bureau also
­recognizes Edward J. Welniak Jr. for his 24 years of service as the Chief of the Income
Statistics Branch. Mr. Welniak moved to a new position within the Census Bureau in
2016. Mr. Welniak spent his career providing guidance on and improving the collection of income data in the Current Population Survey Annual Social and Economic
Supplement, the American Community Survey, and two decennial censuses. His
­dedication, professionalism, and institutional knowledge are greatly appreciated.
Jessica L. Semega and Melissa A. Kollar prepared the income sections of this
report under the direction of Jonathan L. Rothbaum, Chief of the Income Statistics
Branch. Bernadette D. Proctor prepared the poverty section under the direction
of Ashley N. Edwards, Chief of the Poverty Statistics Branch. Trudi J. Renwick,
Assistant Division Chief for Economic Characteristics in the Social, Economic, and
Housing Statistics Division, provided overall direction.
David L. Watt and Susan S. Gajewski, Demographic Surveys Division, and
Tim J. Marshall and Lisa Cheok, Associate Directorate Demographic Programs,
­processed the Current Population Survey 2016 Annual Social and Economic
Supplement file.
Kirk E. Davis, Raymond E. Dowdy, Shawna Evers, Ryan C. Fung,
Chandararith R. Phe, and Tiffani Whaley programmed and produced the
­historical, detailed, and publication tables under the direction of Hung X. Pham,
Chief of the Tabulation and Applications Branch, Demographic Surveys Division.
Joseph Croos, Nghiep Huynh, and Rebecca A. Hoop, under the supervision of
David V. Hornick, all of the Demographic Statistical Methods Division, conducted
sample review.
Lisa Clement, Survey Director of the Current Population Survey, provided overall
direction for the survey implementation. Lisa Cheok and Aaron Cantu, Associate
Directorate Demographic Programs, and Roberto Picha, Agatha Jung, and
Johanna Rupp of the Information Technology Directorate prepared and p
­ rogrammed
the computer-assisted interviewing instrument used to conduct the Annual Social and
Economic Supplement.

­ ontributions
to the preparation of this report. John Hisnanick, Alexander E. Kellner,
Rachel Lindstrom, Laryssa Mykyta, Jose D. Pacas, Kirby G. Posey,
Sharon M. Stern, Lewis H. Warren, and Bruce H. Webster, Jr. reviewed the contents.
Census Bureau field representatives and telephone interviewers collected the data.
Without their dedication, the preparation of this report or any report from the
Current Population Survey would be impossible.
Linda Chen, Christine Geter, Donna Gillis, and Anthony Richards of
the Public Information Office provided publication management, graphics
design and ­composition, and editorial review for print and electronic media.
George E. Williams of the Census Bureau’s Administrative and Customer Services
Division provided ­printing management.
