The 'Quantitative methods in social research bibliography' (PDF format) provides useful links to guides and resources, and a select list of publications available in the British Library. The bibliography covers both commonly used software tools (such as SPSS) and methods associated with quantitative analysis in the social sciences.
The majority of books in this guide were written with postgraduate and academic researchers in mind, but many are also commonly featured on undergraduate reading lists in the UK. The methods and titles represented here are used across many social science disciplines and will be relevant to a diverse range of researchers in areas such as:
- Sociology and Social Policy
- Educational Research
- Gender Studies
- Development Studies
- Socio-Legal Studies
- Organisation and Management Studies
As well as being useful to researchers with affiliations to higher education institutions, this guide is intended to appeal to researchers who work for local and national government, think-tanks, NGOs and charities.
