A Look Inside
Full Text Reviews
Appeared in Choice on 1990-09:
This selective bibliography clearly focuses upon the US writings published since 1980 about polling and social survey techniques. Although more than half of the 350 citations are to periodical articles, the list also includes instructional guides, handbooks, textbooks, and monographs covering all of the major methodological issues in survey research. Foreign imprints, technical reports, and survey results are beyond the scope of this work. The bibliographic information for each entry is easy to read; long descriptive annotations follow to guide the reader. The sources are organized logically into chapters dealing with the various survey techniques, and there are separate indexes for authors, keywords, and journal titles. The appendixes are of only minor importance, except for the list of acronyms. This valuable current bibliography should be in the libraries of all universities with extensive enrollments in the social sciences. No other recent annotated bibliography exists on this subject. -G. B. Thompson, Cleveland State University
