Designing social inquiry : scientific inference in qualitative research by Gary King ( Book )
22 editions published between 1994 and 2012 in English and held by 1,139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
While heated arguments between practitioners of qualitative and quantitative research have begun to test the very integrity of the social sciences, Gary King, Robert Keohane, and Sidney Verba have produced a farsighted and timely book that promises to sharpen and strengthen a wide range of research performed in this field. These leading scholars, each representing diverse academic traditions, have developed a unified approach to valid descriptive and causal inference in qualitative research, where numerical measurement is either impossible or undesirable. Their book demonstrates that the same logic of inference underlies both good quantitative and good qualitative research designs, and their approach applies equally to each. Providing precepts intended to stimulate and discipline thought, the authors explore issues related to framing research questions, measuring the accuracy of data and uncertainty of empirical inferences, discovering causal effects, and generally improving qualitative research. Among the specific topics they address are interpretation and inference, comparative case studies, constructing causal theories, dependent and explanatory variables, the limits of random selection, selection bias, and errors in measurement. Mathematical notation is occasionally used to clarify concepts, but no prior knowledge of mathematics or statistics is assumed. The unified logic of inference that this book explicates will be enormously useful to qualitative researchers of all traditions and substantive fields. -- Publisher description

A solution to the ecological inference problem : reconstructing individual behavior from aggregate data by Gary King ( Book )
11 editions published between 1997 and 2013 in English and No Linguistic content and held by 561 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book provides a solution to the ecological inference problem, which has plagued users of statistical methods for over 75 years: How can researchers reliably infer individual-level behavior from aggregate (ecological) data? In political science, this question arises when individual-level surveys are unavailable (for instance, local or comparative electoral politics), unreliable (racial politics), insufficient (political geography), or infeasible (political history). This ecological inference problem also confronts researchers in numerous areas of major significance in public policy, and other academic disciplines, ranging from epidemiology and marketing to sociology and quantitative history. Although many have attempted to make such cross-level inferences, scholars agree that all existing methods yield very inaccurate conclusions about the world. In this volume, Gary King lays out a unique - and reliable - solution to this venerable problem

Ecological inference : new methodological strategies ( Book )
10 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 271 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Ecological Inference: New Methodological Strategies brings together a diverse group of scholars to survey the latest strategies for solving ecological inference problems in various fields. The last half decade has witnessed an explosion of research in ecological inference - the attempt to infer individual behavior from aggregate data. The uncertainties and the information lost in aggregation make ecological inference one of the most difficult areas of statistical inference, but such inferences are required in many academic fields, as well as by legislatures and the courts in redistricting, by businesses in marketing research, and by governments in policy analysis."--BOOK JACKET

Elections to the United States House of Representatives, 1898-1992 by Gary King ( )
1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
This data collection, designed to facilitate analysis of voting behavior at the district level and the effect of party incumbency on election outcomes, contains election returns for elections to the United States House of Representatives from 1898 to 1992. Votes from each biennial election are tallied by Democratic and Republican candidate and are further grouped by state and congressional district. The party of the incumbent is also indicated. These data are arranged by election year in 48 separate files. An additional file, Part 49, Exceptions Data, contains data for unusual elections, such as when the winning candidate was from a minor party or there was no Democratic-Republican pairing. These data are grouped by state and district and include the year of the election, the party of the winning candidate, and the number of votes received by the winning candidate where available
Ecological Inference New Methodological Strategies. Analytical Methods for Social Research ( )
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Drawing upon the recent explosion of research in the field, a diverse group of scholars surveys the latest strategies for solving ecological inference problems, the process of trying to infer individual behavior from aggregate data. The uncertainties and information lost in aggregation make ecological inference one of the most difficult areas of statistical inference, but these inferences are required in many academic fields, as well as by legislatures and the Courts in redistricting, marketing research by business, and policy analysis by governments. This wide-ranging collection of essays offers many fresh and important contributions to the study of ecological inference
