Cohort Analysis by Norval D. Glenn
Book DescriptionCovering the basics of the cohort approach to studying aging, social, and cultural change, this volume also critiques several commonly used (but flawed) methods of cohort analysis, and illustrates appropriate methods with analyses of personal happiness and attitudes toward premarital and extramarital sexual relations. Finally, the book describes the major sources of suitable data for cohort studies and gives the criteria for appropriate data. The Second Edition features: - a chapter on the analysis of survey data, which includes a discussion of the problems posed by question order effects when data from different surveys are used in a cohort analysis. - an emphasis on the difference between linear and nonlinear effects. - instruction on how to use available data from cohort studies.

Norval D. Glenn, Professor Emeritus of Sociology, who taught for 47 years at The University of Texas at Austin, died February 15, 2011, after a two-year battle with myelodysplastic syndrome, a form of blood cancer. He was 77 years old. He was a valued friend and colleague. Norval D. Glenn is the Ashbel Smith Professor in Sociology and Stiles Professor in American Studies at the University of Texas at Austin. His main research interests relate to aging and the life course, and family relations in modern societies. He is a former editor of Contemporary Sociology and the Journal of Family Issues, and he has served on the editorial boards of such journals as the American Sociological Review, Public Opinion Quarterly, Journal of Marriage and Family, Demography, and Social Science Research. His recent publications deal with such topics as the dissemination of social science findings to policy makers and the general public, changes in the institutional mechanisms of mate selection, and the relationship of age at marriage to marital success.
