Subject: Re: [Humanist] 34.67: qualitative and quantitative Dear all another way of bridging/ uniting/ combining quali-quanti approaches is Systematic Anomalous Case Analysis The way I understand it is as using survey (quantitative) approaches to identify the extremes, the odd, anomalous cases and then study those intensively using qualitative approaches This is to turn sociology on its head, in effect arguing that you can better understand the norms by studying the extremes. Shades of Tolstoy too: do we look at all all those happy families, or the odd, unusual, unhappy ones? See: Pearce, L. D. (2002). Integrating Survey and Ethnographic Methods for Systematic Anomalous Case Analysis. Sociological Methodology, 32, 103-132. best wishes davidz -- David Zeitlyn, Professor of Social Anthropology (research).
