A Solution to the Ecological Inference Problem

How can researchers reliably infer individual-level behavior from aggregate (ecological) data? Harvard's Gary King lays out a uniqueand reliablesolution to this venerable problem. Using an example situation, King unifies a set of diverse findings and arrives at a solution that includes over 16,000 comparisons. King's technique will enable empirical researchers to investigate substantive questions that have heretofore proved unanswerable.

Designing Social Inquiry

While heated arguments between practitioners of qualitative and quantitative research have begun to test the very integrity of the social sciences, Gary King, Robert Keohane, and Sidney Verba have produced a farsighted and timely book that promises to sharpen and strengthen a wide range of research performed in this field. These leading scholars, each representing diverse academic traditions, have developed a unified approach to valid descriptive and causal inference in qualitative research, where numerical measurement is either impossible or undesirable. Their book demonstrates that the same logic of inference underlies both good quantitative and good qualitative research designs, and their...

Demographic Forecasting

Demographic Forecasting introduces new statistical tools that can greatly improve forecasts of population death rates. Mortality forecasting is used in a wide variety of academic fields, and for policymaking in global health, social security and retirement planning, and other areas. Federico Girosi and Gary King provide an innovative framework for forecasting age-sex-country-cause-specific variables that makes it possible to incorporate more information than standard approaches. These new methods more generally make it possible to include different explanatory variables in a time-series regression for each cross section while still borrowing strength from one regression to improve the estima...

No one, from the CEO down to the lowest level worker, intentionally sets out to create waste or fail at their assigned work tasks. It's human nature to strive for and attain success in things we set out to do. Unfortunately many of us unwittingly pursue the path of least resistance even when we're pursuing our goals. Shortcuts multiply over time as we attempt to circumvent less desirable work tasks, and in doing so, we contribute to errors, defects, waste and risk that not only draws on your bottom-line, but jeopardizes productivity, customer satisfaction and loyalty, and ultimately the future of your organization Getting Business Fit takes a cut-to-the-chase approach in identifying, quantifying and setting out to eliminate the non-value work and waste in your organization. The fact that we are amidst a great recession, there is no better time than now to eliminate the waste in your organization and pursue business fitness. All you need is your sincerity to act, organizational commitment from your leadership team, the empowerment of your workforce, and Gary's five simple steps to getting business fit.

Ecological Inference

Drawing upon the explosion of research in the field, a diverse group of scholars surveys strategies for solving ecological inference problems, the process of trying to infer individual behavior from aggregate data. The uncertainties and information lost in aggregation make ecological inference one of the most difficult areas of statistical inference, but these inferences are required in many academic fields, as well as by legislatures and the Courts in redistricting, marketing research by business, and policy analysis by governments. This wide-ranging collection of essays, first published in 2004, offers many important contributions to the study of ecological inference.

Dataset of almost 10 million individually coded events related to political retaliation, world news, economic change, and catastrophes from 1990-2004 resulting from a project designed by Gary King and Will Lowe to evaluate event categorization schemes and software programs that automatically produce data by "reading" news stories without human coders. "Each event is summarized in the data as "Actor A does something to Actor B", with Actors A and B coded for about 450 countries (and other actors) and "does something to" coded in an ontology of about 200 types of actions."
