STRATIFICATION AND INEQUALITY: QUANTITATIVE PERSPECTIVES
Session Code: SPRC_1
Date and Time: Friday, June 3. 9:00am‐10:30am
Location:Science A­‐119
This session will host papers on social stratification and inequality based on quantitative research. We encourage a comparative focus, although papers focusing on Canada are also welcome. Stratification research that concerns public opinion, social policy, social mobility, immigrant social and economic integration, changes in the occupational structure, and trends in the association between social class and economic values are preferred, though other topics implementing quantitative methods will also be considered. In terms of politics, we are including papers with a focus on voting using survey of other forms of data, with questions related to public opinion on topics of political concern, with civic engagement in its many forms, and with new forms of political involvement in Western democracies or elsewhere.
