First, let’s keep this in perspective, here are the correlations from the GSS for married individuals for several variables of note (I’ve filtered for whites here): Ethnicity – 0.40 Highest Degree – 0.55 Socioeconomic index – 0.32 I think it’s interesting to note that the variable which reveals meritocratic achievement has the highest correlation.
Ethnicity is something you’re born into, and socioeconomic index is a metric which derives from the milieu in which you were raised.
I read his research."The Plight of Mixed Race Adolescents" is forty-five-pages long with the last eleven dedicated to graphs, tables and figures.
Okay, there are a lot of interesting suggestions here.
"There are some bad adolescent behaviors that whites do more than blacks (like drinking and smoking), and there are other bad adolescent behaviors that blacks do more than whites (watching TV, fighting, getting sexually transmitted diseases)," Steven and the others write.
I'm a sex, dating and relationships writer who developed a fetish for facts while studying multivariate regression analysis in my graduate sociology courses in Florida. So, I did what Steven probably hoped all of us who read his blog post would do.
S., so I wanted to get a sense of how many people they interviewed to draw their conclusions. We're focusing on the 300 fashion accessories."Of the twenty-one different bad behavior variables that we analyze, mixed race adolescents are worse than both blacks and whites on 15 of them; they fall in between blacks and whites on the remaining 6 measures." What a loaded statement.
Analyzing data from one popular dating site revealed that men from every race replied to e-mails sent by Black women less often than they did to notes sent by women of other races, according to an NYTimes.com's blog "Freakonomics." "Men (including African-American men) write back to African-American women at about a 20 percent lower rate," the post reads.
