Statistics and statistical analyses have become a key feature of contemporary social science. Social statistics is the use of statistical measurement systems to study human behaviour in a social environment. This can be accomplished through polling a particular group of people, evaluating a particular subset of data obtained about a group of people, or by observation and statistical analysis of a set of data that relates to people and their behaviors. This major reference collection brings together the classic pieces that have framed the often controversial debates of using statistics as a social research method.

About Author

Roger Penn is currently a Professor of Sociology at Queen's University Belfast. He is a member of the Academy of the Social Sciences, and recently a Visiting Professor at University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) and at the University of Bologna. He is the author of 14 books, including Skilled Workers in the Class Structure, Class, Power and Technology, Social Change and Economic Life in Britain and Children of International Migrants in Europe, and the Editor of two SAGE Series: Statistical Analysis of Continuous Data (four volumes) and Social Statistics (four volumes). He has a long-standing interest in the interface of history and sociology. He has been the Director of a range of multidisciplinary teams engaged in systematic empirical sociology including the Economic and Social Research Council's (ESRC) Social Change and Economic Life Initiative and the European Union-funded Effectiveness of National Integration Strategies (EFFNATIS) project. Main research interests lie in the field of economic sociology, as well as the application of social statistics to sociological data.
