Expert Answer:

Social scientist - someone expert in the study of human society and its personal relationships

Social scientists study all the aspects of society from past events and achievements to human behavior and relationships among groups. Their research provides insights into the different ways individuals, groups, and institutions make decisions, exercise power, and respond to change. They look at data in detail, such as studying the data they have collected, reanalysing already existing data, analysing historical records and documents, and interpreting the effect of location on culture and other aspects of society. Several major types of social scientists are as follows:

Archaeologists examine and recover material evidence, including tools, pottery, cave paintings, the ruins of buildings, and other objects remaining from past human cultures in order to learn about the history, customs and living habits of earlier civilizations.

Anthropologists study the origin, development, and behavior of humans. They examine the ways of life, languages, archaeological remains and physical characteristics of people in various parts of the world.

Geographers study the earth and its land, features, inhabitants, and phenomena. Most geographers work in one of two main branches of geography: physical and cultural.
