Social Surveys and Social Statistics

The research focus of this group is the analysis of social survey datasets. There is an emphasis on detailed empirical research that is theoretically informed. Members of the group employ rigorous social science methods of data analysis in the pursuit of internationally excellent social science outputs. There is a broad spectrum of substantive social science topics and issues currently under investigation for example social stratification, ethnicity, social identity, citizenship, social capital, social networks, housing and social inclusions and exclusion.

There is also a strong methodological strand within the group. The major emphasis is on the application and interpretation of statistical models. A particular focus is work relating to issues surrounding the data management of large and complex social datasets.
