Survey Research: Examining Expressed Feelings and Views on Racial(ized) Issues as Variables Along with Other Variables

  • Norma RommEmail author


In this chapter I turn to a discussion of some examples of survey research that have been organized to examine people’s feelings and attitudes/views in relation to specific racial(ized) issues and to consider connections between variables isolated. I show how the researchers see their work as helping to formulate workable social interventions for engaging with (detected) forms of racism. But first – in line with my concentration on examining methodologies – I place my discussion in the context of a number of authors’ accounts of survey research as a research design.
