This book provides an overview of both new and practiced methods of social measurement for quantitative survey research. It considers how academic social scientists and survey professionals use social measurement techniques, and how these techniques are applied to specific concepts in empirical research. It aims to advise readers looking to investigate social science topics how key measurement techniques can be utilised in that topic in a practical way. The separate chapters of the book consider: measuring family and household variables; measuring crime; measuring political behaviour and attitudes; measuring religious behaviour; measuring social class; measuring race and ethnicity; measuring sexual behaviour; measuring health; measuring social capital; measuring social attitudes; and challenges for social measurement.
