Quantitative Methodology in Sociology: The Last Twenty-five Years.
Schuessler, Karl F.
American Behavioral Scientist, v23 n6 p835-60 Jul-Aug 1980
Argues that recent work in research methods in sociology consists largely of adapting methods developed elsewhere (statistics, demography, economics) for answering relatively simple questions about social change. These questions reflect practical as well as theoretical concerns. Discusses social indicators, social forecasting, cohort, occupational inheritance, and panel methods. (Author/KC)
