Overview

Research Design provides a practical overview of the central issues involved in the design of social and economic research. Covering both theoretical and policy research, Hakim sets out the key features, strengths and limitations of eight main types of study, with illustrations from real-life research of the kinds of questions each can best be used to answer. In addition, this book offers a more general pragmatic discussion of strategies for choosing between one design and another, and how different types of study can be successfully combined in wider ranging research programmes." "This book will be a guide to research design for students, for professional social scientists and for those who commission and use social research.
