Abstract: Without a well-developed and formalized technique of qualitative, holistic comparison, social and political science researchers encounter considerable frustrations and difficulties in terms of undergoing comparative work. In cases of crossnational data sets, which are relatively small in size, conventional quantitative techniques, such as multivariate statistical analysis cannot maintain patterns of statistical interaction. Moreover, if researchers want to compare different countries, statistical methods encourage them to increase sample size and ignore or at least skip other issues of comparability like historical, cultural or geographical aspects of the social phenomenon in the study.
