When seeking to test specific hypotheses in large data sets, social and behavioural scientists often construct models. Although useful in such situations, many phenomena of interest do not occur in large samples and do not lend themselves to precise measurement. In addition, a focus on hypothesis testing can constrict the potential use of models as organizing devices for emerging patterns - summaries of what we believe we know about the dynamics of situation.
