Designing social inquiry : scientific inference in qualitative research by Gary King( Book )

26 editions published between 1994 and 2012 in English and held by 978 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

A solution to the ecological inference problem : reconstructing individual behavior from aggregate data by Gary King( Book )

18 editions published between 1997 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 509 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book provides a solution to the ecological inference problem, which has plagued users of statistical methods for over seventy-five 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 pol
Unifying political methodology : the likelihood theory of statistical inference by Gary King( Book )

30 editions published between 1989 and 2011 in English and held by 469 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The future of political science : 100 perspectives by Gary King( Book )

15 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 391 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book contains some of the newest, most exciting ideas now percolating among political scientists, from hallway conversations to conference room discussions. To spur future research, enrich classroom teaching, and direct non-specialist attention to cutting-edge ideas, a distinguished group of authors from various parts of this sprawling and pluralistic discipline has each contributed a brief essay about a single novel or insufficiently appreciated idea on some aspect of political science. The one hundred essays are concise, no more than a few pages apiece, and informal. While the contributions are highly diverse, readers can find serendipitous connections across the volume, tracing echoes as well as diametrically opposed points of view. This book offers compelling points of departure for everyone who is concerned about political science - whether as a scholar, teacher, student, or interested reader
Demographic forecasting by Federico Girosi( Book )

9 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ecological inference : new methodological strategies( Book )

18 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 264 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."--Jacket

The big deal about big data : a lecture by Gary King( Visual )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a keynote presentation, Professor Gary King describes how big data has changed and drastically expanded the capacity of social science to understand the world around us. He cites many examples of how big data is being applied in research, including studies on Social Security forecasting, Chinese censorship, and gerrymandering
Explaining rare events in international relations( )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Some of the most important phenomena in international conflict are coded as "rare events": binary dependent variables with dozens to thousands of times fewer events, such as wars and coups, than "nonevents." Unfortunately, rare events data are difficult to explain and predict, a problem stemming from at least two sources. First, and most important, the data-collection strategies used in international conflict studies are grossly inefficient. The fear of collecting data with too few events has led to data collections with huge numbers of observations but relatively few, and poorly measured, explanatory variables. As it turns out, more efficient sampling designs exist for making valid inferences, such as sampling all available events (wars, for example) and a tiny fraction of nonevents (peace). This enables scholars to save as much as 99 percent of their (nonfixed) data-collection costs or to collect much more meaningful explanatory variables

Elections to the United States House of Representatives, 1898-1992 by Gary King( )

4 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and No Linguistic content 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
