Scientific social surveys and research; an introduction to the background, content, methods, principles and analysis of social studies by Pauline V Young( Book )

89 editions published between 1939 and 2001 in English and held by 1,307 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The present text aims (1) to provide background materials on the development, nature, and scope of social surveys and research; (2) to indicate the complex variety of sources of data and to provide a basis for the cultivation of the habit of distinguishing between the more and the less reliable scientific sources of information; (3) to provide at least a minimum of instruction in the use of indispensable scientific tools and methods which may serve as a starting point in social exploration; and (4) to indicate the highly interrelated nature and the intricate complexity of social life, social processes, and problems which must be considered when one undertakes to study such phenomena as a culture group, a social institution, a community, or a social problem. This text also aims to avoid sterile abstract discussion of methods and techniques. Indeed, it attempts to show the relation of the processes and methods of fact-finding to human purposes and social values. It is hoped that the generous use of illustrative materials will give the student a lively sense of actual field-work situations and serve as examples of acceptable field-work practice. Scientific Social Surveys and Research lends itself best to a two-semester course in which the student can combine field, classroom, and laboratory work (chiefly in the development of schedules, questionnaires, or sociometric scales--should such be used in his study--or in the preparation of statistical tables, charts, graphs, maps, and so on). In those colleges and universities where only one semester is devoted to a course on social surveys and research, much of the laboratory work may of necessity have to be omitted, and the student may have to choose a field project narrower in scope"--Preface.

Population trends and educational change in the State of Washington by Calvin F Schmid( Book )

8 editions published in 1960 in English and Undetermined and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The impact of social, economic, and population changes in the state of washington were analyzed to determine relationships to and influences upon public educational trends, especially with respect to physical facilities, curriculums, staff, finances, and administration. For the purpose of this study, the state was grouped into logical and relatively homegeneous territorial components where the various factors in educational and school change were investigated as functional responses to overall community needs and changes. Data were obtained from census tract publications and tabulations, private and parochial reports, official records, files, interviews, and observation. Extensive use was made of graphic techniques in the report, facilitating and simplifying the numerous statistical presentations. Study conclusions provided an understanding of the more serious problems relating to the schools in the state and of the forces and conditions producing them. (Jh)
