Many social science data are by nature organized in cross-classified formats, for example, gender and racial differences in the relationship between education and occupation, cross-national and/or temporal changes in patterns of marriage homogamy, temporal variations in import/export or input/output patterns, changes in the relationship between class positions, party identification and voting, and changes in the characteristics of urban neighborhoods in the United States over time. While the substantive rationale in exploring their systematic relationship may appear simple and straightforward, the application of appropriate statistical tools to decipher and interpret the meaning and complexities of the relationships involved can sometimes be difficult. Fortunately, with the important pioneering works in this field we now have a large repertoire of statistical models, association models in particular, which are well-suited for such analyses. Although association models have been widely utilized by social stratification researchers, especially in the study of social mobility and assortative mating such techniques have yet to be widely disseminated to other social science disciplines. This is partly because most of the important contributions are scattered in various journals and there has not been any systematic effort to integrate the family of association models into a single, coherent framework.

The Association Graph and the Multigraph for Loglinear Models will help students, particularly those studying the analysis of categorical data, to develop the ability to evaluate and unravel even the most complex loglinear models without heavy calculations or statistical software. This supplemental text reviews loglinear models, explains the association graph, and introduces the multigraph to students who may have little prior experience of graphical techniques, but have some familiarity with categorical variable modeling. The author presents logical step-by-step techniques from the point of view of the practitioner, focusing on how the technique is applied to contingency table data and how the results are interpreted.

Qualitative interviews are a key tool in modern research practice. What are the different forms of the qualitative interview? Which method is suitable for which situation? How does one conduct qualitative interviews in practice? The book answers these and other questions by presenting methodological principles and different interview methods with schemata, figures, and examples, along with a discussion of their advantages and disadvantages.

Dieses Buch stellt einige wichtige und zukunftsträchtige neuere Methoden in den Sozialwissenschaften vor. Ziel des Buches ist, einerseits deren Grundlogik zu klären und andererseits zu zeigen, inwiefern sie den klassischen Methodenkatalog sinnvoll ergänzen können. Dazu wird das Spektrum an mit diesen Techniken bearbeitbaren Fragestellungen aufgezeigt, Beispielarbeiten diskutiert, nötige Voraussetzungen z.B. in Bezug auf die Datenqualität angesprochen, und damit insgesamt das Potential dieser Verfahren veranschaulicht. Zudem gibt jeder Beitrag praktische Tipps für die Umsetzung eigener Forschungsarbeiten und anhand kommentierter Literaturempfehlungen Ansatzpunkte für die intensivere Beschäftigung mit den Methoden. Daneben wird (sofern angebracht) kurz diskutiert welche Softwarepakete sich für die Anwendung eignen.
