Racial Disparities in Health Care: A Data-Driven Learning Guide The term health disparities refers to population-specific differences in the presence of disease, health outcomes, quality of health care, and access to health care services that exist across racial and ethnic groups.Over the last 50 years, African Americans and other minority groups have made significant economic and educational strides. But these advances have been tempered by continuing disparities in health and health care compared to Whites. Despite substantial policy efforts to the contrary, racial and ethnic minorities, especially African-Americans, often receive a lower quality of care and have worse outcomes.In this exercise, we will explore racial disparities in health and healthcare in the US, focusing on some of the barriers to access and quality healthcare.

Is Love Really Blind?: A Data-Driven Learning Guide Modern Westerners brought up on a steady diet of popular songs and romantic movies tend to believe that interpersonal attraction and mate selection are both random and very subjective. Popular culture propagates the notion of "love at first sight" and teaches us that "love is blind, "love just happens," and "you can't help who you fall in love with." Research shows, however, that this is not necessarily true and that, in reality, society aims Cupid's arrow more than we like to think. In this exercise we explore the concepts of homogamy, routine activities, social networks, and mere exposure by examining how similar respondents are to their partners on a variety of social characteristics and how they met and became involved with their partners.
