Permission to reprint the abstract has not been received from the publisher.

The idea of a microcomputer workbook designed for beginning sociology students is by no means a novel one. There have been a fair number of such programs and learning packages created in recent years. Practically every publisher can boast of having at least one such supplement, which it often offers free to users of its main texts. However, most of the programs and workbooks have remained underutilized, having sunk deep into the paper pile on professors' desks, where they remain, gathering dust. Unlike some of the many programs built around studying imaginary societies or simulation models, the present book is based upon real social data. It draws from a variety of archival sociological data sources: the General Social Surveys; the National Longitudinal Study of Youth; the Chicago Homicides Study; and The American National Election Studies, among others.
