about

Written in an engaging and accessible narrative style, Research Decisions: Quantitative, Qualitative, and Mixed-Method Approaches shows students how they can effectively integrate qualitative methods, such as surveys, and statistical methods, such as data collection and manipulation in SPSS and other software, to undertake deeper and more nuanced social research and analyses. The text is truly multidisciplinary and features a rich diversity of examples for sociology, criminology, political science, health studies, education, and anthropology students.
