The significance test controversy; a reader by Denton E Morrison( Book )

44 editions published between 1970 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 718 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Tests of significance have been a key tool in the research kit of behavioral scientists for nearly fifty years, but their widespread and uncritical use has recently led to a rising volume of controversy about their usefulness. This book gathers the central papers in this continuing debate, brings the issues into clear focus, points out practical problems and philosophical pitfalls involved in using the tests, and provides a benchmark from which further analysis can proceed.The papers deal with some of the basic philosophy of science, mathematical and statistical assumptions connected with significance tests and the problems of the interpretation of test results, but the work is essentially non-technical in its emphasis. The collection succeeds in raising a variety of questions about the value of the tests; taken together, the questions present a strong case for vital reform in test use, if not for their total abandonment in research.The book is designed for practicing researchers-those not extensively trained in mathematics and statistics that must nevertheless regularly decide if and how tests of significance are to be used-and for those training for research. While controversy has been centered in sociology and psychology, and the book will be especially useful to researchers and students in those fields, its importance is great across the spectrum of the scientific disciplines in which statistical procedures are essential-notably political science, economics, and the other social sciences, education, and many biological fields as well.Denton E. Morrison is professor, Department of Sociology, Michigan State University.Ramon E. Henkel is associate professor emeritus, Department of Sociology University of Maryland. He teaches as part of the graduate faculty."--Provided by publisher

A silent minority : a research feasibility probe of discontent among the rural poor by Denton E Morrison( Book )

4 editions published in 1970 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Intended to provide basic information about the attitudes and behavior of the rural poor, this report summarized data gathered from 9 families living in Michigan's lower peninsula. Selected because their houses and surroundings indicated permanent occupancy by people who were poor, the families were interviewed by 2 college-age women. Responses to 93 questions were taped for later transcription and analysis. The questions provided insight into topics such as (1) why the families lived in the country rather than in the city, (2) how they felt about their socioeconomic situation and lack of mobility, (3) goals for their children and their own personal failures, and (4) their experiences with government and private agencies and private business. Results of the analysis indicated a need for research on (1) the mental health implications of rural poverty; (2) experimental programs to educate, motivate, and train; (3) community development; (4) agencies and agents; and (5) comparative studies. The interview guide for this survey of rural living and community needs is appended. (BD)

One of the purposes of the North Central Rural Sociology Sub-committee on Farm Organizations is to serve as a mechanism through which statewide studies of farm organizations in Wisconsin and Michigan would be partially coordinated. To communicate both the knowledge needs and the accumulated literature on farmers' organizations and movements to other researchers is the purpose of this bulletin. Part I of the bulletin comprises 3 essays that outline the sub-committee members' views on needed research. The first 2 essays, "Some Needs in Farm Organization Research" and "Needed Research on Farmers' Movements," deal primarily with research that would contribute to the development of basic sociological knowledge and theory on organizations and movements. The third essay, "Applied Sociological Research on Farm Organizations and Farmers' Movements," focuses specifically on research of practical utility to those concerned with building viable farm organizations. Part II of the bulletin is "A Bibliography of U.S. and Canadian General Farm Organizations and Farmers' Movements," consisting of 998 items published between 1846 and 1969. The bibliography is alphabetized in a single list by author, but a "Title Index" and an "Index of Place, Person, Specific Organization, and Specific Movement Names in Titles" are also provided.
