Discussion post #4
How did asking the wrong questions lead to the undercounting of evictions?
What is conceptualization? What is operationalization? How do these pertain to “How asking the wrong questions led to the undercounting of evictions”?
What is a concept? What are the dimensions of a concept? What is a variable? What is an indicator?
What are the levels in the process of conceptualization (going from abstract/general to concrete/specific) (page 105)?
What is unit of analysis, and what are examples? What is the role of aggregation in moving from the individual unit of analysis to a higher unit of analysis (such as group, organization, city, county, state, nation, or world)?
Conceptualize the general concept of “eviction” (see Evicted; “How we undercounted…”; and MARS [pages 21-22 and the diagrams “Reasons for Moving”]).
