How sociology is related with social anthropology

Sociology and Social Anthropology are closely related social science disciplines. They study the ways in which people live together under various social and cultural conditions.  They explore various  dimensions of human societies in order to understand human behaviour, social interactions and institutional structures in all their diversity. 

The difference lies in the methods employed in studying. Sociology relies more on quantitative statistical techniques like surveys and data collection. Social anthropology relies of ethnographic methods of field studies.
