The fields of study he is best known for:

  • World War II
  • Law
  • Social science

His primary scientific interests are in Standard of living, Demography, Welfare, Industrialisation and Economic growth. Richard H. Steckel has included themes like Economic history, National Income and Product Accounts, Development economics, Index and Socioeconomic differences in his Standard of living study. His research investigates the connection with Development economics and areas like Politics which intersect with concerns in Socioeconomic status.
