macrosociology


Also found in: Dictionary, Wikipedia.

macrosociology

the level of sociological analysis concerned with the analysis of whole societies, social structures at large, and social systems (compare MICROSOCIOLOGY). While the terms macro- and microsociology are used in sociology, the distinction is not as well-established or as central as the related distinction of micro- and macro- in ECONOMICS.
