  1. An uneasy alliance : combining qualitative and quantitative research methods.

    Article - En anglais

    The paper describes the difficulties encountered in trying to combine qualitative and quantitative research methods in a study of the relationship between moral reasoning and teenage drug use.

    Four problems that arose in the attempt to reduce qualitative data to a quantitative format are described.

    These problems are (1):

    • making analytic sense of singular response;

    • (2) a mistaken logical inference that demands that each pattern of judgement should have discrete behavioral indicators;

    • (3) the construction and use of ideal types;

    • and (4) making analytical sense of universal responses.
