Discovering Real (Homogenous) Social Groups in the Russian Society: Methods and Results
The article focuses on the problem of identifying real social groups in the contemporary Russian society. The data from all-Russian monitoring surveys are used to compare two social structure models obtained by alternative methods. One of the models is similar to that of the European sociological tradition based on a socio-professional classification. The other one has been obtained by applying the cluster analysis after having ranked the stratification criteria derived from the entropy analysis.
