This book suggests that underlying the debates on causation in the field of International Relations is a set of problematic assumptions (deterministic, mechanistic and empiricist) and that we should reclaim causal analysis from the dominant discourse of causation. Constructing Social Theories presents to the reader a range of strategies for constructing theories, and in a clear, rigorous, and imaginative manner, illustrates how they can be applied. Arthur L. Stinchcombe argues that theories should not be invented in the abstract—or applied a priori to a problem—but should be dictated by the nature of the data to be explained. This work was awarded.

  Written by one of the preeminent researchers in the field, this book provides a comprehensive exposition of modern analysis of causation. It shows how causality has grown from a nebulous concept into a mathematical theory with significant applications in the fields of statistics, artificial intelligence, economics, philosophy, cognitive science, and the health and social s: The food and nutrition policy–focused conceptual framework identifies the causal factors of nutrition security and the food policy linkages to them. It also identifies the points of entry for direct and indirect nutrition programs and policy interventions as well as the capacity gaps for analysis and evaluation of food and nutrition policies.

A combination of causal and descriptive analysis is necessary for understanding “why” an interven- tion has a causal effect: a sound ca usal analysis can assess the effects of an intervention; and effective descriptive work can identify the characteristics of the population, the features of implementation, and the nature of the setting that is most relevant to interpreting the findings.   This may be true for the causal inference theory developed by Rubin () and expanded in Imbens and Rubin book (), but certainly not for the causal inference theory developed in (Pearl, ) which is also based on counterfactuals, yet .

The analysis of causal linkages in demographic theory 3 case. Some of the results we obtain are quite general; others are for special cases. One or two have been obtained in the literature before; most are new.

The paper is arranged as follows. Section 1 proposes a general linkage method, illus- trating it. THE CAUSAL LINKAGE METHOD In this section I shall develop both the vocabulary we need and a general method for linkage analysis in demographic theory.

I will avoid abstractions, and will assume (at some cost to full mathematical rigor) that the functions dealt with inhabit appro- priate, if unmentioned, spaces and that they are smooth enough.

Causal inference in demography is however far from easy, and few causal claims are probably sustainable in this field.

This paper targets the assessment of causality in demographic research. It aims to give an overview of the methodology of causal research, pointing out various problems that can occur in : Guillaume Wunsch, Catherine Gourbin.

Regression analysis is used to develop a causal relationship between psychographic variables, demographic variables and outshopping.

Discover the world's research 17+ million members. Causal linkages are hypnotic words that imply a cause effect relationship between something that is happening and something the communicator wants to happen.

They are used not only by hypnotherapists, but advertisers and salespeople. This new perfume will make all the guys want you. "Causal analysis is inherently sequence analysis" (Rueschemeyer et al.,4, quoted in Thelen,).

Moreover, the outcomes of concern to policy researchers typically involve complex chains of events unfolding over time, which defy accurate characterization through regression analysis, with its more static snapshots of covariation.

The reality is seldom so simple: there are often many more pathways, and feedback loops etc. Use of TOC in evaluation 6. Theory of Change analysis is most commonly used to assess an intervention’s causal logic, effectiveness and likelihood of impact.

This essay addresses the issue of causation in demography. The focus is on change in aggregate demographic phenomena through time.

Causal linkage is considered in relation both to mechanical. This book presents both theoretical contributions and empirical applications of the counterfactual approach to causal inference.

In the set of causal linkages, climate change and associated bio-productivity fluctuation are revealed as the ultimate cause of economic, social, human ecological, and demographic problems.

Elazar J. Pedhazur (Multiple Regression in Behavioral Research, 2nd edition, Holt, Rinehard and Winston, ) has a nice introductory chapter on path analysis which is recommended reading for anyone who intends to use path analysis. This lecture draws heavily upon the material in Pedhazur's book."The Nature of Demography would be best suited to numerate readers with an existing knowledge of basic demographic theory and methods.

The book contains a fascinating overview of the current state of demography, its methodological history and links to other disciplines. It effectively conveys the continuing evolution of the discipline.".
