Case Study: the Family, Continuity and Change

This resource presents a case study showing how one project used qualitative and quantitative methods of research to discover how much families have changed over the decades since the 1960s.

The case study shows how ethnographic research, studying people in their own environment, is conducted. Data gathered highlights changes in contact between two groups of people and comparative research methods are then explained. Analysis of a questionnaire survey also helped to gain a clearer picture.
