Creation of socio-economic data sets and the Entity-Relationship model

Ernst Goss, George Vozikis

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Economists and sociologists have traditionally created and maintained their databases on secondary storage devices in the form of 'flat' files with accompanying integrity and redundancy problems. This paper presents an alternative methodology, the Entity-Relationship model, which circumvents many of these problems and provides the researcher with a technique that more effectively creates and stores data.
