In political technological know-how, this question arises whilst individual-level surveys are unavailable (for example, neighborhood or comparative electoral politics), unreliable (racial politics), inadequate (political geography), or infeasible (political history). This ecological inference challenge additionally confronts researchers in different parts of significant importance in public coverage, and different educational disciplines, starting from epidemiology and advertising and marketing to sociology and quantitative background. even supposing many have tried to make such cross-level inferences, students agree that every one present tools yield very erroneous conclusions in regards to the international. during this quantity, Gary King lays out a unique--and reliable--solution to this venerable problem.

He then provides his resolution, in addition to empirical reviews of the answer that come with over 16,000 comparisons of his estimates from actual mixture facts to the identified individual-level solution. the strategy works in practice.

King's strategy to the ecological inference challenge will let empirical researchers to enquire noticeable questions that experience heretofore proved unanswerable, and flow ahead fields of inquiry within which growth has been stifled through this problem.
