Editorial Reviews


"This book provides the motivation for rethinking various data collection techniques and serves as a field guide to particular tools that can be used as they are, with some modification, or as inspiration for the creation of new mixed method strategies...Its focus on the role of the researcher should be of value to social scientists involved in field research and to those who are not." - Studies in Family Planning

"...a useful addition to the literature on mixed methods research..." - Journal of the Royal Anthropological Institute

"There are now a fair number of book-length treatments of mixed-methods approaches, each with their strengths and weaknesses.... However, it is fair to say that the existing literature does not speak as directly to the needs and concerns of development economists as the book under review by William Axinn and Lisa Pearce." - Economic Development and Cultural Change

Book Description

This book, first published in 2006, draws on a broad range of available social data collection methods to formulate a set of data collection approaches combining elements of existing methods. These methods are designed to create a comprehensive empirical description of the subject, accumulating the information needed with a minimum of error.
