Beschreibung

This Four-Volume Set constitutes the core of our understanding of contemporary societies, human behaviours, social institutions, and their evolutions in history. The demand for high-quality numerical and statistical social research is expansive and increasing. Often, advances in quantitative methods are discipline specific, and the cross-fertilization of ideas is poor.
The aim of this collection is to bring together the best of quantitative social science articles from a diverse range of disciplines including sociology, economics, social policy, social geography, psychology, public heath, demography, criminology and education. The editors provide exemplars to show how different quantitative techniques are appropriate for addressing a broad range of social science questions. Unlike most methods texts, this collection focuses on the advances and uses of quantitative methods to address substantive issues within social sciences. The articles range from those that introduce basic quantitative concepts to those that discuss cutting-edge statistical advances.
Volume One: Overview and Research Design
