Sobre o livro
Qualitative Comparative Analysis in Mixed Methods Research and Evaluation, the sixth volume in SAGE's Mixed Methods Research Series, provides an introduction and practical applications for using Qualitative Comparative Analysis (QCA) as part of a mixed methods approach to research and evaluation.QCA uses formal logic and set theory, a branch of mathematics, to identify non-correlational relationships using qualitative data, quantitative data, or both derived from the cases included in the analysis. The chapters of this text build upon one another to walk both novice and experienced researchers through the steps of QCA in logical order. To enhance and reinforce learning, authors Heather L. Kane and Leila C. Kahwati provide learning objectives, summaries, and exercises for each chapter, as well as datasets for use in R through the companion site. This volume offers practical, in-depth, and applied guidance for this unique analytic technique that is not provided in any current mixed methods book, and is the perfect text for graduate students or professors looking to expand their methodological toolbox.
