Sociologists are concerned with how our individual lives are shaped by our social locations, and how we are influenced by social groups. They ask:
- How do people create their society?
- How do age, gender, ethnicity, social class, race and other social factors affect one’s opportunities?
- How do social forces contribute to our understandings about the social world?
