Ratio Variables in Aggregate Data Analysis: Their Uses, Problems, and Alternatives.
Bollen, Kenneth A.; Ward, Sally
Sociological Methods and Research, v7 n4 p431-50 May 1979
Three different uses of ratio variables in aggregate data analysis are discussed: (1) as measures of theoretical concepts, (2) as a means to control an extraneous factor, and (3) as a correction for heteroscedasticity. Alternatives to ratios for each of these cases are discussed and evaluated. (Author/JKS)
