Explore key concepts while developing quantitative literacy

Social Explorer

Social Explorer personalizes graphs, maps, and other infographics with data from specific locations, allowing you to explore how what you’re learning about applies on a local level. You can view statistics and trends, such as unemployment rate and demographic shifts, for your town or county, and compare this data with other parts of the world. You can also analyze maps at different points in time, or in comparison to one another, to easily identify how trends emerge, grow, and wane geographically.

Understand important topics and view ideas through various sociological lenses

Core Concepts Videos
