SAGE Quantitative Research Methods

Four Volume Set
Edited by:


February 2011 | 1 760 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
For more than 40 years, SAGE has been one of the leading international publishers of works on quantitative research methods in the social sciences. This new collection provides readers with a representative sample of the best articles in quantitative methods that have appeared in SAGE journals as chosen by W. Paul Vogt, editor of other successful major reference collections such as Selecting Research Methods (2008) and Data Collection (2010).

The volumes and articles are organized by theme rather than by discipline. Although there are some discipline-specific methods, most often quantitative research methods cut across disciplinary boundaries.

Volume One: Fundamental Issues in Quantitative Research

Volume Two: Measurement for Causal and Statistical Inference

Volume Three: Alternatives to Hypothesis Testing

Volume Four: Complex Designs for a Complex World
