The purpose of this exercise is to demonstrate your ability to synthesize numerical data and sociological perspectives. Throughout the semester, we have been developing our understanding of the Conflict and Functionalist perspectives. In this exercise, you will use data (see the 3 tables below) from the Central Texas Sustainability project (CTSIP), a comprehensive evaluation of sustainability indicators in Central Texas, to identify patterns in numerical data and then apply each of the perspectives in explaining why these patterns exist. Firstly, students should review the CTSIP tables (below) and figure out what sociological patterns are present regarding issues of inequality and healthcare. Secondly, students should identify and describe the two major theories (Conflict and Functionalism). Thirdly, students should apply these theories to the patterns presented in the CTSIP data. Finally, students should identify the larger societal implications presented in the data, combined with theoretical findings. Below is a suggested outline to help guide your development of the paper. Please pay particular attention to the rubric given on the following page, as it provides specific information on where your points will come from and what I will be looking for.
