World Religions Religion Statistics Geography Church Statistics A Guide to Statistics on Historical Trends in Income Inequality The broad facts of income inequality over the past six decades are easily summarized: The years from the end of World War II into the 1970s were ones of substantial economic growth and broadly shared prosperity. Incomes grew rapidly and at roughly the same rate up and down the income ladder, roughly doubling in inflation-adjusted terms between the late 1940s and early 1970s. Data from a variety of sources contribute to this broad picture of strong growth and shared prosperity for the early postwar period, followed by slower growth and growing inequality since the 1970s. This guide consists of four sections. I. The most widely used sources of data and statistics on household income and its distribution are the annual survey of households conducted as part of the Census Bureau’s Current Population Survey (CPS) and the Statistics of Income (SOI) data compiled by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) from a large sample of individual income tax returns.

Most minimum wage workers are adults who work for large corporations May 10, 2013 One of the major arguments that comes up whenever there’s some talk about raising the minimum wage is “What about small businesses!” and “What about teenagers! Who is going to hire teenagers if they have to pay them anything close to a living wage?” It’s easy to assume that most minimum wage workers are teenagers working for some extra pocket change so they can get a dress for prom, go to the movies or buy some Adderall off that kid in third-period history. Well, here’s the thing: Only 24% of minimum wage workers are teenagers. We have a serious problem with the working poor in this country. And what about small businesses! Well, as far as that goes, the majority of minimum wage workers (66%) in this country work for large corporations with more than 100 employees. It makes me sick. These companies complain about minimum wage hikes, and having to give workers health insurance. Sigh. One last thing on the small businesses, because I worked for a lot of them in my retail days.
Ta-Nehisi Coates - Authors On Monday, 66-year old Joan Tarshis accused Bill Cosby of raping her. Tarshis says the attack took place in 1969, when she was 19 and working as comedy writer: ... [H]e told me that he wanted to work on a monologue together, and I had an idea for something about an earthquake that had just happened. It was my first earthquake. I had some funny lines, and he said, Sure, let's work on that. Tarshis is the fifth woman to publicly accuse Bill Cosby of raping her. Perhaps it is not fair for a journalist to consider, or even publicize, anonymous allegations of criminal activity. Most of these allegations came after Constand sued Cosby in civil court. A defense of Cosby requires that one believe that several women have decided to publicly accuse one of the most powerful men in recent Hollywood history of a crime they have no hope of seeing prosecuted, and for which they are seeking no damages. I spent parts of 2006 and 2007 following Bill Cosby around the country. It was not enough.

Open Textbook Library About the Book While Research Methods in Psychology is fairly traditional— making it easy for you to use with your existing courses — it also emphasizes a fundamental idea that is often lost on undergraduates: research methods are not a peripheral concern in our discipline; they are central.

Open Textbook Library About the Book When you teach Introduction to Psychology, do you find it difficult — much harder than teaching classes in statistics or research methods? Do you easily give a lecture on the sympathetic nervous system, a lecture on Piaget, and a lecture on social cognition, but struggle with linking these topics together for the student? Do you feel like you are presenting a laundry list of research findings rather than an integrated set of principles and knowledge? This book is designed to facilitate these learning outcomes, and he has used three techniques to help focus students on behavior: Chapter Openers: Each chapter opens showcasing an interesting real world example of people who dealing with behavioral questions and who can use psychology to help them answer them. Research Foci: Introduction to Psychology emphasizes empiricism throughout, but without making it a distraction from the main story line.
