In this paper decision and structural models are distinguished on conceptual and empirical grounds. At one level of analysis the two models discharge different functions and apply to distinct logical universes. At another level, the two models apply to similar kinds of "reality." Political data from a village in India provides an example of the application of these models at both levels of analysis. Finally, propositions are formulated that clarify the employment of these models for other kinds of data.
