Series Editor: Barbara Entwisle, The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

Barbara Entwisle is Kenan Distinguished Professor of Sociology at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Her work is published in journals such as the American Sociological Review, American Journal of Sociology, Demography, Annals of the American Association of Geographers, American Journal of Epidemiology, and Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Entwisle has taught research methods at the graduate and undergraduate levels for most of her career, and is teaching those courses again now that she has returned to the faculty after a six-year stint as Vice Chancellor for Research at the University of North Carolina. Her editing experience includes co-editing Demography and serving on the editorial boards of over a half dozen other journals.

Note from Barbara Entwisle:

"I am honored to serve as Series Editor for SAGE’s Quantitative Applications in the Social Sciences and to follow in the footsteps of the many distinguished editors before me. I am particularly privileged to serve as the Series celebrates its 40th anniversary. In my view, the 'little green books' serve two very valuable purposes. First, social science faculty use the more introductory volumes as supplements in their graduate and advanced undergraduate courses. Second, advanced graduate students, postdocs, and faculty use the more advanced volumes as routes into the technical literature. Thus far, SAGE has published 175 QASS volumes on a wide range of topics of interest to social science researchers at all levels, with well over a million copies sold. While Series Editor, I will work with authors to revise and update the more central of these, especially if the original volumes were published some time ago, but mainly I would like to recruit 'little green books' on new topics, including quantitatively oriented data collection. I welcome your inquiries. I also welcome your comments and suggestions about how to make the QASS Series even better."
