Research Design in Aging and Social Gerontology : Quantitative, Qualitative, and Mixed Methods
About this item
This book moves beyond marginalization and limited ways of thinking about aging and older people in research design by introducing some multi-, inter-, and transdisciplinary research possibilities in gerontology. It works on two levels: first, providing an overview of a method and, second, how to implement and execute that method. Traditional "how to" elements of research design are also included along with application strategies and real-world issues a researcher encounters in the field. This is an ideal resource for those beginning their first research project, those trying to master a new method, or those working with older people and wanting to gather data or complete an evaluation.
