The Factorial Survey Approach
Steven L. Nock & Peter H. Rossi editors
This state-of-art guide and text provides the first detailed explanation of the factorial survey method, the theory behind it, and its multiple uses. Currently employed in a wide variety of settings (under different names), factorial surveys provide a powerful tool for the study of how people make real-life choices.
As the contributors to this volume demonstrate, the method combines multivariate experimental design and sample survey procedures to capture the complexity of human life and the actual conditions of human choice and judgement. It enables the user to identify the separate influences of the many factors that go into such judgements and choices. Researchers, scholars, and advanced students in the social sciences will appreciate the contributors' clear explications of the factorial survey method-and their fascinating demonstrations of its utility in different research situations.
