researchcrowdadmin Our Research

Our research topics and questions match appropriate levels and units of analysis. A level of analysis is a theoretical explanation on a continuum from the micro level (e.g., individual processes) to the macro level (i.e., structural aspects of society). The unit of analysis refers to the type of unit that is being measured. The unit might be the individual, the family, the community, the social category (e.g., race], the social institution (e.g., education) and the society (e.g., nation).
