Social Indicators for Policy Research and Democratic Action: A Paradigm and Some Examples. Report-73-119.
The primary purpose of this paper is to present a possible means to establish a new social indicators intelligence system that embodies a relations testing capacity. Major ideas defined and described include social indicators, theory, model, policy research, and democratic action. A paradigm covers the movement from theory to model and action. Three examples are used to show the inference from model to reality. It was noted that a system for the construction, collection, and analysis of social indicators should not be isolated from other intellectual and political endeavors. It is argued that a single best utilization of social indicators research exists within the policy research and analysis domain that will respect the functioning of the democratic system. (PS)
