Synopsis : How do academic social scientists and survey professionals use social measurement techniques? How are these techniques applied to specific concepts in empirical research? This book is an important resource for students, academic and professional researchers, offering an overview of both new and practiced methods of social measurement for quantitative survey research. It will provide readers looking to investigate 'hot' social science topics with a way of learning how key measurement techniques can be utilised in that topic in a practical way. Emerging from the editors' widely used work on an online social survey resource offering information on key social surveys and their questionnaires entitled 'Question Bank', this book aims to take this material further. It elaborates on the problems involved with this resource type, providing a comprehensive and unique volume that will enable the reader to have the confidence to use this technique in their own research.

Critique: 'Here at last is a book that addresses the crucial role of theory in survey research. Eleven surveys are presented, each a valuable case-study in its own right, but more importantly, each shows, in a scholarly and highly readable fashion, how theory can both be derived from and inform this essential technique of social science research methodology.' Mark Garner, University of Aberdeen, UK 'Bulmer, Gibbs and Hyman's volume is light in quantitative technicality, yet rich in its discussion of the complexities underlying measurement operations; consequently, it is both highly readable, and likely to appeal to specialist and non-specialist alike. ... Overall, this collection bridges an important gap in methodological literature... this volume implicitly offers much to question tired dualisms of epistemology which often depict such measures and measurement processes as removed from the complex mix of historical and theoretical considerations addressed by the authors within.' The Irish Journal of Sociology
