– studies highlight the diversity of behaviors that fulfill the functional requisites of society.

– investigate social facts, the social sources of behavior that are used to explain rates of behavior.

-studies are more concerned with the patterns of behavior observed in large numbers of people or groups rather than with the behavior of individuals.
