Race and Ethnicity in Research Methods


Volume: 157

© 1993 | 320 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Studying across race and ethnic lines creates many problems for the researcher involving practical, strategic, ethical and epistemological questions alike. The contributors to this volume examine the array of methods used in quantitative, qualitative and comparative/historical research to show how ethnic-sensitive research can be carried out.

Among the methodological traditions discussed are survey research, demography, testing and assessment, ethnography, discourse analysis, comparative methods and archival research.
