Social Statistics Using Strategic Structuralism and Pluralism

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


I review and critically assess several current developments in social statistics. In each area I suggest how the methods I prefer may relate to traditional preoccupations in the philosophy of social science. The specific methods covered are regression, latent variable models, fuzzy causality, F-tests of necessity and sufficiency in the fuzzy set literature, and the ongoing dispute about causality. In this way the chapter describes some exciting opportunities in social statistics, placing them in a unified framework to some extent.
