An analysis of the sociology projects of the National Social Science Fund Project Database from 1991 to 2016 demonstrates that sociology projects have obvious spatial orientation and social transformation characteristics, with a wide range of research objects and diverse research topics. Most of them are devoted to discovering social laws and solving social problems through scientific research means and methods. Further analysis shows that the achievements of National Social Science Fund sociological project papers are rich, their number is increasing, and their impact is higher than the general papers in the social sciences. However, their overall research level remains to be improved.
