Event history modeling : a guide for social scientists by Janet M Box-Steffensmeier( Book )

20 editions published between 2004 and 2011 in English and held by 379 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Event History Modeling provides an accessible up-to-date guide to event history analysis for researchers and advanced students in the social sciences. The substantive focus of many social science research problems leads directly to the consideration of duration models, and many problems would be better analyzed by using these longitudinal methods to take into account not only whether the event happened, but when. The foundational principles of event history analysis are discussed and ample examples are estimated and interpreted using standard statistical packages, such as STATA and S-plus. Recent and critical innovations in diagnostics are discussed, including testing the proportional hazards assumption, identifying outliers, and assessing model fit. The treatment of complicated events includes coverage of unobserved heterogeneity, repeated events, and competing risks models. The authors point out common problems in the analysis of time-to-event data in the social sciences and make recommendations regarding the implementation of duration modeling methods."--Jacket

In this timely sequel to Democracy's Feast: Elections in America, a team of analysts headquartered at The Ohio State University mine National Election Study data to place Bill Clinton's reelection and the reelection of the Republican Congress in the contexts of voter realignment, partisanship, candidate factors, ideology and issues, voter turnout, trust in governing institutions, campaign finance, and media innovations
Time series analysis for the social sciences by Janet M Box-Steffensmeier( Book )

13 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Time-series, or longitudinal, data are ubiquitous in the social sciences. Unfortunately, analysts often treat the time-series properties of their data as a nuisance rather than a substantively meaningful dynamic process to be modeled and interpreted. Time-Series Analysis for Social Sciences provides accessible, up-to-date instruction and examples of the core methods in time-series econometrics. Janet M. Box-Steffensmeier, John R. Freeman, Jon C. Pevehouse, and Matthew P. Hitt cover a wide range of topics including ARIMA models, time-series regression, unit-root diagnosis, vector autoregressive models, error-correction models, intervention models, fractional integration, ARCH models, structural breaks, and forecasting. This book is aimed at researchers and graduate students who have taken at least one course in multivariate regression. Examples are drawn from several areas of social science, including political behavior, elections, international conflict, criminology, and comparative political economy"--
The Dynamics of Aggregate Partisanship by Janet M Box-Steffensmeier( )

2 editions published in 1996 in No Linguistic content and English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Despite extensive research into the nature and determinants of party identification, links between individual-level partisan persistence and the degree of permanence in aggregate-level partisanship have largely been ignored. The failure to link the two levels of analysis leaves a gap in our collective understanding of the dynamics of aggregate partisanship. To remedy this, a set of ideal types are identified in this collection that capture the essential arguments made about individual-level party identification. The behavioral assumptions for each ideal type are then combined with existing results on statistical aggregation to deduce the specific temporal pattern that each ideal type implies for aggregate levels of partisanship. Using new diagnostic tests and a highly general time series model, the investigators found that aggregate measures of partisanship from 1953 through 1992 are fractionally integrated. The evidence that the effects of a shock to aggregate partisanship last for years -- not months or decades -- challenges previous work by party systems theorists (e.g., Burnham, 1970) and students of ''macropartisanship'' (e.g., MacKuen, Erikson, and Stimson, 1989). The arguments and empirical evidence of the degree of persistence in macro-level partisanship provides a conceptually richer and empirically more precise basis for existing theories -- such as those of issue evolution (Carmines and Stimson, 1989) or endogenous preferences (Gerber and Jackson, 1993) -- in which partisanship plays a central role ...

Replication Data for Quality Over Quantity : Amici influence and judicial decision making( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Interest groups often make their preferences known on cases before the U.S. Supreme Court via amicus curiae briefs. In evaluating the case and related arguments, we posit that judges take into account more than just the number of supporters for the liberal and conservative positions. Specifically, judges' decisions may also reflect the relative power of the groups. We use network position to measure interest group power in U.S. Supreme Court cases from 1946 to 2001. We find that the effect of interest group power is minimal in times of heavily advantaged cases. However, when the two sides of a case are approximately equal in the number of briefs, such power is a valuable signal to judges. We also show that justice ideology moderates the effect of liberal interest group power. The results corroborate previous findings on the influence of amicus curiae briefs and add a nuanced understanding of the conditions under which the quality and reputation of interest groups matter, not just the quantity

Event history models in American politics, comparative analysis, and international relations : a video short course( Visual )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Events-oriented data are prevalent in political analysis. Whether one is examining the onset of military conflict, the termination of a political coalition, or the ending of a legislative career, the issue of timing of an event-- that is, when some event occurs-- is implicitly important. And while events-oriented data are common in American politics, comparative analysis, and international relations, methods for analyzing events history are less well understood. In this short course, we will provide an intermediate introduction to event history methods."--Http://

Symbols and substance : how Black constituents are collectively represented in the United States Congress through roll-call voting and bill sponsorship by Valeria Sinclair-Chapman( )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Using data I collected on House members' roll-call voting behavior and bill introductions, as well as data from a recent national black opinion survey, I create several measures of substantive and symbolic representation to analyze how House members represent black interests at the policy-making and agenda-setting stages of the legislative process. I find that descriptive representatives (those sharing similar social characteristics, e.g., race) and partisan representatives (those sharing the same party affiliation) represent black policy preferences differently depending on the stage of the legislative process being examined and whether the representation is symbolic or substantive
