Abstract:

Attention to cultural variation has become an important source of insight in
the social, behavioural, and health sciences. Mixed methods research provides
an especially sensitive and powerful way to make systematic cross-cultural
comparisons, in which qualitative approaches give a window onto cultural
meaning and the phenomenological 'feel' of social life, and quantitative
methods facilitate hypothesis testing and sophisticated modelling of social
and behavioural phenomena. For researchers engaged in cross-cultural projects,
this book offers a theory-based approach to integrating 'numbers' and 'text'
based on discourse as the originary form of data collection, the method and
framework of analysis, and the medium of publication. The book provides
concise explanations, targeted examples, step-by-step instructions, and actual
analyses of cross-cultural, quantitative survey data and qualitative interview
data, with special attention to language(s) and translation as clues to the
study of cultural variation.
