Each volume includes a list of works cited, and the third contains a comprehensive index and lists of person names, organizations, books, tests, software, major concepts, surveys, and methodologies."--"Reference that rocks," American Libraries, May 2005.

Data Theory and Dimensional Analysis

By examining some of the basic scaling questions, such as the importance of measurement levels, the kinds of variables needed for Likert or Guttman scales and when to use multidimensional scaling versus factor analysis, Jacoby introduces readers to the most appropriate scaling strategies for different research situations. He also explores data theory, the study of how real world observations can be transformed into something to be analyzed, in order to facilitate more effective use of scaling techniques.

The updated second edition offers expanded discussions of the chi square test of significance and the potential measures of association available for use with categoric data. Reviewing basic techniques in analysis of nominal data, this paper employs survey research data on party identification and ideologies to indicate which measures and tests are most appropriate for particular theoretical concerns. This book serves as an ideal primer for Volume 20, Log-Linear Models.

Page: 190
View: 9829
This book presents state of the art theoretical and empirical research on the ubiquitous internet: its everyday users and its economic stakeholders. The book offers a 360-degree media analysis of the contemporary terrain of the internet by examining both user and industry perspectives and their relation to one another. Contributors consider user practices in terms of internet at your fingertips—the abundance, free flow, and interconnectivity of data. They then consider industry’s use of user data and standards in commodification and value-creation.

This book consists of three major sections. In the first, which includes chapters 1 to 7, the basic concepts of the methodology of the social social sciences are discussed. In the second, chapters 8 and 9, the most important concepts of part one are integrated in discussions on the writing of research proposals and research reports. The third section (appendices) consists of three "case studies" in which the most important methodological principles which were discussed in the preceding sections are illustrated.

Basic Math for Social Scientists

A review of the basic mathematical concepts that underlie most quantitative analysis in the social sciences is presented in this volume. The author begins with an algebra review featuring sets and combinations and then discusses limits and continuity. Calculus is presented next, with an introduction to differential calculus, multivariate functions, partial derivatives, and integral calculus. Finally the book deals with matrix algebra. Packed with helpful definitions, equations, examples and alternative notations, the book also includes a useful appendix of common mathematical symbols and Greek letters.

The Association Graph and the Multigraph for Loglinear Models

The Association Graph and the Multigraph for Loglinear Models will help students, particularly those studying the analysis of categorical data, to develop the ability to evaluate and unravel even the most complex loglinear models without heavy calculations or statistical software. This supplemental text reviews loglinear models, explains the association graph, and introduces the multigraph to students who may have little prior experience of graphical techniques, but have some familiarity with categorical variable modeling. The author presents logical step-by-step techniques from the point of view of the practitioner, focusing on how the technique is applied to contingency table data and how the results are interpreted.

Providing basic foundations for measuring inequality from the perspective of distributional properties This monograpg reviews a set of widely used summary inequality measures, and the lesser known relative distribution method provides the basic rationale behind each measure and discusses their interconnections. It also introduces model-based decomposition of inequality over time using quantile regression. This approach enables researchers to estimate two different contributions to changes in inequality between two time points. Key Features Clear statistical explanations provide fundamental statistical basis for understanding the new modeling framework Straightforward empirical examples reinforce statistical knowledge and ready-to-use procedures Multiple approaches to assessing inequality are introduced by starting with the basic distributional property and providing connections among approaches This supplementary text is appropriate for any graduate-level, intermediate, or advanced statistics course across the social and behavioral sciences, as well as individual researchers.
