Choosing Research Methods: Data collection for development workers

Choosing Research Methods: Data collection for development workers

Ratings: (0)|Views: 350 |Likes:
Published by Oxfam
Development workers often need to carry out specific research in order to obtain answers to vital questions about projects and programmes. Choosing Research Methods discusses the various ways in which such research can be carried out, and how to select the most appropriate method for particular circumstances. The advantages and disadvantages of a wide range of research methods are assessed, and guidance is given on how to decide exactly what information is necessary, and how to obtain it, given the resources of time, personnel, and money available. Illustrated with actual examples from the experience of Oxfam and other development agencies, the book is intended to demystify research and to explain how it can be effectively incorporated into the development project cycle, even in small-scale, low-cost development programmes.
