Goal And Objectives

Goal:

  • Obtain data from scholarly resources to support your research.

Objectives:

  • Access Census data and New York City test scores data.
  • Enhance your search skills
  • Distinguish valid sources

LEH 100 Topics

How to find:
  • % of Hispanics in the Bronx in BOTH the 2000 and 2010 census
  • Average SAT scores for the Bronx in 2000 and 2012
  • 2014 Year- % of Hispanics in the Bronx? Hispanics by Country of Origin

Questions to think about:

  • What “political impact” do the census results have? How else, and by whom, are the data used?
  • Look at the 2010 U.S. Census form. What survey questions might you ask to create a portrait of your school and/or community.
