SOC 270 – Social and Demographic Change
Fall 2019
Scardamalia
Community Profile Project
The purpose of the Community Profile Project is to apply the data access and presentation skills
you’ve learned to the analysis of social and demographic change in a community of your choice
(usually your home town but any area of interest). Class lectures and assignments have
focused on the key factors important to analyzing population change. Now it’s time to bring
them together to analyze how your area has grown or declined, how the characteristics of the
population have changed, and how your area compares to other areas.
You will analyze the following basic demographic, social, and economic characteristics and
everyone’s paper will include these four sections:


The Aging Process – a required section of your paper
Race and Ethnic Diversity – a required section of your paper
Pick 1 of the following Social Characteristics and 1 of the following Economic Characteristics
Social Characteristics
• Household and family formation
• Nativity and residential mobility
Economic Characteristics
• Employment and labor force
• Income and poverty
Your project analysis MUST include the Aging Process and Race and Ethnic Diversity and one
of the Social Characteristic topics and one of the Economic Characteristic topics.
Geographic Areas
Your analysis should include your “home” tract and at least one but NO MORE THAN 2
ADDITIONAL CENSUS TRACTS. You should include comparisons of your tracts to the larger city
and county. For example, if you analyze three tracts in Manhattan, your comparison should
include Manhattan Borough (New York County) as a whole and also include New York City as a
whole. Upstate or Long Island tracts would be compared to the larger city/town and county. If
you are in Albany your tracts would be compared to Albany City and Albany County.
Community Profile Structure
Your analysis will likely approach ten pages in length, PLUS tables and graphics but your analysis
is most important. Don’t fill up pages with large tables. Data that is concise and appropriate to
your analysis is more important than volumes of data.
Following is a basic outline for your report:
I. Introduction to the area and why you chose it for your analysis. This should also include
some background on the type of area it is – urban, suburban, residential, commercial.
Include your Census tract reference map from American FactFinder.
II.
Description of the data sources you use. This should include information about the
Census and American Community Survey and things we’ve learned about collection
process, conceptual differences, differences in sample size, etc.
III.
The historical population trend for your county and city/town from 1970 to 2010 and
major factors influencing change, including a graph of population change.
IV. Age composition
V. Race/ethnic composition
VI. Social characteristics: (pick one)
a. Household and family formation
b. Migration and residential mobility
VII. Economic characteristics: (pick one)
a. Income and poverty
b. Employment and labor force
VIII.
Summary: conclusions and insights your analysis has shown
IX. You can include an appendix with your large tabular data (optional).
Please proofread your paper! In your writing, pay attention to sentence structure, grammar,
and spelling. I can’t tell you how many papers I read that obviously haven’t been proofread. It
won’t help you if I can’t understand what you’re saying. I won’t correct it but poor grammar
and structure will negatively impact your grade!
Technical Specifications:
Length: 8-12 pages of text PLUS your data tables/graphics
Layout: double-spaced, one inch margins
Font: Arial or Calibri, 11pt or 12pt
Format: MS Word, if you’re using a Mac, make sure you save it in a Windows compatible
format
Submission: by email to rscardamalia@albany.edu
IMPORTANT:
Your Community Profile Project is due ON THE LAST DAY OF CLASS by 5:00 PM (not 11 PM)
that’s Thursday, December 5, 2019. I get all sorts of excuses but I’m under NO OBLIGATION
to accept late submissions.
