Abstract

Social scientists have ignored biological constraints of human behavior for a long time almost completely. If prediction of behavior is considered as essential for a social science. The neglect of any variable, which might influence human behavior, is hardly justified. Therefore, this paper gives examples of such biological variables and their measurement in social surveys.
