Toward Integrating Qualitative and Quantitative Methods: An Introduction.
Steckler, Allan; And Others
Health Education Quarterly, v19 n1 p1-8 Spr 1992
Quantitative research methods produce factual, reliable, and generalizable data. Qualitative methods generate rich, detailed, valid process data. Ways to integrate them include (1) using qualitative methods to develop quantitative instruments; (2) using qualitative methods to explain quantitative findings; (3) using quantitative methods to embellish qualitative studies; and (4) using both methods equally.
