Welcome to the Chair of Quantitative Social Research!

Our topics include research methods (experiments, surveys, replications), social inequality (e.g. gender inequality, ethnic discrimination) as well as attitudes and the acceptance of policy interventions (e.g. in the environmental field). Following the scientific understanding of analytical-empirical sociology, we try to provide clear and precise analyses based on meaningful data.
