Social research is a necessary academic activity for explaining, analyzing, and understanding a problem, as well as for finding a solution. A systematic approach of collecting, organizing, and analyzing information relating to a problem is adopted. This type of research aims to discover new facts or verify old ones, and analyze their sequence, inter-relationship, and causal explanation in order to understand human behavior. In social research, the laboratory is the society and the objects are human beings. This book explains the methodology of social research. Based on research conducted in India, the book is divided into two sections, describing the various theoretical issues related to research, while also being devoted to quantitative and other techniques, to reach meaningful conclusions to understand and solve social problems.
