Everyone is part of a web of social relations that offers them opportunities and imposes constraints on the way they behave. Sociologists seek to explain how opportunities and constraints interact to influence economic, political, criminal, sexual, and other forms of social behaviour. They do so by systematically observing social milieux, conducting surveys and experiments, analyzing official statistics, and inspecting historical documents.
