Reviews

Praise for earlier editions of Surveys in Social Research `This excellent book presents a lucid and comprehensive overview of all the contemporary issues in the development of surveys in social research ... The resources make this book valuable for novices but also a great addition to the library of more experienced researchers.' -Journal of Family Studies `De Vaus helps to demystify survey research by breaking down the process into manageable components. This is perhaps the greatest strength - he encourages the reader to tackle and understand "statistical research" rather than shy away.' -Social Security Journal `... one of the most comprehensive and accessible texts on survey research available.' -The Australian and New Zealand Journal of Sociology `By concentrating on one method and providing a sound working knowledge of how to do good surveys, de Vaus indeed achieves a distinctive balance ...' -Canadian Journal of Sociology
