This book considers how real-world observations can be interpreted to convert them into data to be analysed, so as to facilitate more effective use of sealing techniques. The author then introduces readers to the most appropriate strategies for different research situations. Some of the basic scaling questions, such as the importance of measurement levels, the kinds of variables needed for Likert or Guttman scales, and when to use multidimensional sealing instead of factor analysis are examined. The latest research on data theory work, previously only available in technical journals, is now made accessible to social scientists.
