Lingwood, Jamie; Levy, Rachael; Billington, Josie; Rowland, Caroline – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2020
The fact that many sub-populations do not take part in research, especially participants from lower socioeconomic (SES) backgrounds, is a serious problem in education research. To increase the participation of such groups we must discover what social, economic and practical factors prevent participation, and how to overcome these barriers. In the…
