The purpose of sociology is to gain a scientific understanding of how the social world works. Sociologists research everything from how people form identities (micro sociology) to how social structures change over time (macro sociology) and confer opportunities and/or constraints on social activity (meso sociology). Sociologists rely on systematic quantitative and qualitative methods for collecting and analyzing data. This field of study is made up of various subfields: social inequality; race and ethnicity; sex, gender, and sexuality; health and illness; politics and social movements; migration and refugees; religion; family; work and the economy; organizations; technology, sociological theory, etc.
