In simple and non-technical terms, the Second Edition of Data Collection and Analysis illustrates a wide range of techniques and approaches used in social research projects. Always accessible and engaging, this comprehensive text covers both quantitative and qualitative approaches to data collection and analysis in social research, considering both the structure and logic of research projects and the ethics and politics of research.
A wide range of examples illustrate the text and a set of exercises runs throughout the book to aid the reader in understanding and planning research projects.
Building on the strengths of the First Edition, this new and expanded version includes:
- The addition of chapter introductions, summaries and key terms to guide the reader through the text
- Three brand new chapters focusing on: research and information on the Net; discourse research; ethnographic and discursive qualitative analysis
- Up-to-date examples of research in action
- New material on questionnaire design, composite measurement and techniques of quantitative and qualitative interviewing
An invaluable guide for students from across the social sciences, this wide-ranging volume is also a key resource for practitioners in a variety of applied areas including nursing, social work, the criminal justice system, teaching and education.
