Big Data Tools. Stats & SPSS resources. General Social Survey. The GSS contains a standard 'core' of demographic, behavioral, and attitudinal questions, plus topics of special interest. Many of the core questions have remained unchanged since 1972 to facilitate time-trend studies as well as replication of earlier findings. The GSS takes the pulse of America, and is a unique and valuable resource.

It has tracked the opinions of Americans over the last four decades. Trends The GSS is widely regarded as the single best source of data on societal trends. Cross-National Data Cross-national data are collected as part of the International Social Survey Program (ISSP). General Social Survey Resources developed at Queens College.

The General Social Surveys (GSS) have been conducted by the National Opinion Research Center annually since 1972, except for the years 1979, 1981, and 1992 (a supplement was added in 1992), and biennially beginning in 1994.

For each round of surveys, the Roper Center for Public Opinion Research prepares a cumulative dataset that merges previous years of the GSS into a single file, with each year or survey constituting a subfile. The content of each survey changes slightly as some items are added to or deleted from the interview schedule. Main areas covered in the GSS include socioeconomic status, social mobility, social control, the family, race relations, sex relations, civil liberties, and morality. Topical modules designed to investigate new issues or to expand the coverage of an existing subject have been part of the GSS since 1977, when the first module on race, abortion, and feminism appeared.

The dataset links labeled "Quick Tables" use a simplified user interface for generating basic crosstabulations (from a pre-selected subset of the variables in the study).

The other dataset links use the standard SDA interface (4.0 or 3.5 version). SDA 4.0 Now Available for Most Datasets In addition to the older SDA 3.5 interface, the new SDA 4.0 user interface is now available for most datasets in our archive. The 4.0 user interface is still in beta and some minor changes may be made before it is released.

Social Network Analysis. Social network analysis [SNA] is the mapping and measuring of relationships and flows between people, groups, organizations, computers, URLs, and other connected information/knowledge entities. The nodes in the network are the people and groups while the links show relationships or flows between the nodes. SNA provides both a visual and a mathematical analysis of human relationships. Management consultants use this methodology with their business clients and call it Organizational Network Analysis [ONA]. ONA allows you to x-ray your organization and reveal the managerial nervous system that connects everything. To understand networks and their participants, we evaluate the location and grouping of actors in the network.

We look at a social network -- the "Kite Network" above -- developed by David Krackhardt, a leading researcher in social networks.

Software for Qualitative Research – From Content Analysis and Ev. Introduction and guide. A short video guide to this site and to the Caqdas Networking Project site. This site is designed for several different kinds of user who have questions about QDA (qualitative data analysis) and CAQDAS (Computer Assisted Qualitative Data AnalysiS) programs. The links below are for some of these categories of users. A video of a talk on online resources including the CAQDAS Networking site (part 1) and this website (part 3) and a look at Methodspace and a discussion (part 2). Complete beginner This is someone who is new to qualitative data analysis in general and especially to the use of software.

This might include researchers from backgrounds outside the social sciences who now need to undertake qualitative analysis or possibly those just starting social science PhDs who may have studied a little about qualitative research for their first degree, but who now feel they could do with a revision of the basics. Undergraduates Postgraduates Thinking of using software Researchers. Intelligent Archive / Centre for Literary and Linguistic Computing / Research Institutes, Centres & Groups / Research / Humanities and Social Science / Schools. Developed at the Centre for Literary and Linguistic Computing , University of Newcastle, Australia Hugh Craig R Whipp, Michael Ralston Introduction {*style:<b>What is the Intelligent Archive?

</b>*}The Intelligent Archive program is a Java based piece of software used for text analysis within the University of Newcastle's Centre for Literary and Linguistic Computing (CLLC). The software is used in various different ways by the Centre researchers who are focusing on different aspects of text analysis. Professor Hugh Craig is the chief architect of the IA's development; much of the core functionality that is required for Prof.

The typical CLLC project involves preparing a set of texts for computational stylistics operations, with the ultimate purpose of determining authorship of a disputed literary work, or analysing the style of a work or group of works. And incorporates a range of counting functionalities which can be determined by the user, hence is an 'intelligent archive'. CAQDAS Networking Project Homepage.
