Course Description

This research seminar will examine the economic status of racial minorities and women in the U.S. with a focus on Asian Americans. Topics include income and wealth, theories of discrimination, and patterns of occupational and industrial segregation. Students will be exposed to the research process and undertake their own research projects.

We will begin the course by examining racial and gender inequality in economic well-being. What is economic well being? Are there racial and gender differences in income and wealth? What kinds of patterns are there? What light can neoclassical economic theory shed on these differences? Are there other explanations for these differences?

We will then review basic statistical concepts and tools. How do you forumulate a hypothesis? How do you empirically test a hypothesis? What is the difference between statistical significance and economic significance? How do you interpret the output from a regression?

We will finish the course by examining 1990 Census data on various groups of Americans. What does the data tell us about the racial and gender differences in economic status? What does the data tell us, and not tell us, about the causes of these differences?

This course is a research seminar designed to expose students to the research process. It is excellent preparation for students planning to write a senior thesis during the spring semester on a related topic. The computer will be used extensively, but prior programming experience is not required or expected. The statistical package we will be using is STATA. This software will be made available to students in the Pitzer computer lab. The prerequisites are an introductory course in economics or ethnic studies. Students enrolled in ASAM 120 or Econ 20 are not expected to have had introductory economics, but students enrolled in Econ 120 are expected to have had a year of introductory economics, and will be graded accordingly.

Requirements for the course include attendence, a midterm exam, and a final paper. Appropriate readings will be assigned during the course of the semester. Ehrenberg & Smith, Modern Labor Economics, 5th edition, HarperCollins will be placed on reserve. The material in the first third of the course is covered in Ehrenberg & Smith denoted E&S below. Additional background information can be found in B. Schiller, The Economics of Poverty and Discrimination, 7th edition, Prentice Hall, 1998 and A. H. Studenmund, Using Econometrics, 3rd edition, Addison-Wesley, 1997. The course web page is located at http://www.pitzer.edu/~lyamane/econ120.htm. All information for the course will be posted on the webpage.
