“Inferring from the General to the Specific: What Happened? Why?”

Chris posted “Walmart and the ASA” to the orgtheory blog. The piece is about the recent ASA Amicus Brief which supports the use of social framework analysis by social scientists who act as expert witnesses in, and whose conclusions can support class certification of, large class action discrimination litigation cases. This issue is generating a lot of debate, on scatterplot as well as orgtheory, the outcome of which might have important implications for the role of social scientists in legal processes, such as the current Walmart case [more on the case here 123] to be decided on this summer. Discussion on the blog has also incorporated other issues relating to the mission and role of ASA.

  1. I learned in university a lot of social framework analysis and the statistic behind. A nice field for research and I was able to use it in my PHD thesis. Afterwards I never used it again.
