Survey research methods by Earl R Babbie( Book )

"Este libro enfoca el tema de la investigacion cientifica. Tiene el doble proposito de ayudar a los lectores que emprendan investigaciones cientificas propias, y a comprender investigaciones cientificas efectuadas por otros." "El proposito de la primera parte de este libro es ofrecer una vision de la logica de la ciencia, de modo que las tecnicas especificas de la investigacion por encuestas puedan tener mayor sentido". "La primera parte: EL CONTEXTO CIENTIFICO DE LA INVESTIGACION POR ENCUESTA, considera la logica basica de la ciencia. Empieza con un analisis de la imagen tradicional de la ciencia, imagen que es generalmente enganosa e inapropiada en el marco de la verdadera investigacion cientifica. A este respecto el proposito es hacer que la ciencia sea pertinente y realista." "La segunda parte: DISENO DE LA INVESTIGACION POR ENCUESTAS, se consagra al tema aun mas delicado de la ciencia social. Este es un tema sobre el que se ha escrito mucho en anos recientes. Algunos escritores insisten en que la ciencia social no es ni un apice menos 'cientifica' que la ciencia natural, mientras que otros rechazan tal idea. Otros consideran que la ciencia social va progresando hacia la categoria de ciencia, pero que aun no la ha alcanzado." "La tercera parte: ANALISIS DE LA INVESTIGACION POR ENCUESTAS, realiza un examen especifico de la investigacion por encuesta. El capitulo empieza con una consideracion de la historia del metodo y luego se concentra en las formas en que este tipo de investigacion embona en las formas generales de la ciencia y de la ciencia social." En la cuarta parte: LA INVESTIGACION POR ENCUESTAS EN LA PERSPECTIVA SOCIAL Y CIENTIFICA, se describe el modo de manejar la encuesta, el manejo e interpretacion de datos y el reporte final
