Summary/Abstract: The aim of the article is to give an answer to the question: What data analysis methods are most often used in field studies of divorces with the participation of divorced persons and/or members of their families? The source basis was constituted by a selection of sociological articles on divorces published in renowned American academic journals in 1980-2000. In sociological studies of divorces multiple regression analysis is decidedly most often used – both as an autonomous method of analysis and together with other methods. Also logistic regression and probit models are relatively frequently used, whereas experience analysis is used more rarely. Correlation analysis is seldom used; and canonical correlation, path analysis, factor analysis, the LISREL model and cluster analysis are used only sporadically.
