dc.description.abstract This study concentrates on determining the occupational status of the science of Sociology. More specifically, it attempts to determine the status of the job of “social researcher'', as perceived by social researchers themselves. Such determination is reached at by assessing the level of the social researchers' contentment with regards of occupational status, as well as how they look at the possible role of such job title in attaining a reputable social status, and, finally by studying their suggestions regarding improving their current social status. This investigation is carried out by seeking answers for the main question raised in the study: “what is the social status of Sociology in the Saudi society?” The method of social survey was utilized and a case study of a sample of 91 social researchers (in a variety of social institutions in Riyadh city) was developed. The most remarkable results of the study was that the majority of social researchers a) Do not have - for a variety of reasons - occupational satisfaction; b) Feel that their occupation has negative impact on their social status; c) Do not feel that they enjoy any occupational advantage by being social researchers; d) Realize that their specialty lacks any positive role to play in attaining social status. Finally, the study develops some recommendations to improve the occupational status of social researchers to their satisfaction. en_US
