Social Constraint Theory

An example of inductive generated social theory in Earl Babbie's book.
Why do people use marijuana?

  • 마리화나 예
  • 흡연자와 비흡연자: 동등한 학업성적, 학교활동, 대학생활적응
  • But,
    • 여성 < 남성
    • 동양계 < 비동양계
    • 집 < 자취

Overall, then, a “social constraints” theory was offered as the explanation for observed differences in the likelihood of smoking marijuana. The more constraints a student had, the less likely he or she would be to smoke marijuana. It bears repeating that the researchers had no thoughts about such a theory when their research began. The theory came from an examination of the data.
