Bridging the gap between quantitative and qualitative approaches, this book presents methods for interrelating and integrating the variables, findings, and evaluations from the facets of the case i. Using case examples from five different disciplines neuropsychology, education, law, business, and environmental sciences , the authors show the reader how to use the embedded case design to enhance synthesis and knowledge integration. The authors share their broad knowledge of the philosophy of science to explain the rationale behind each step of embedded case designs, and recap each explanation with concept recaps called "lessons to be learned. This book offers readers a sophisticated approach to integrating mixed methods in case studies. Roland W.

Using their own Zurich North case study to explain the proper use of case study methods, they demonstrate how eleven different techniques -- including integrated risk assessment, multi-attribute utility theory, scenario analysis, future workshops, and a kind of mediation called Area Development Negotiation -- ought to be used to develop collaborative solutions. Along the way, they destroy conventional distinctions between quantitative and qualitative methods and offer finally! Most of the relevant literature from more than a dozen disciplines is reviewed in detail.
Embedded Case Study Methods: Integrating Quantitative and Qualitative Knowledge
An embedded case study is a case study containing more than one sub-unit of analysis Yin, However, the identification of sub-units allows for a more detailed level of inquiry. The embedded case study design is an empirical form of inquiry appropriate for descriptive studies, where the goal is to describe the features, context, and process of a phenomenon. Roland W.
A nested case—control NCC study is a variation of a case—control study in which cases and controls are drawn from the population in a fully enumerated cohort. Usually, the exposure of interest is only measured among the cases and the selected controls. Thus the nested case—control study is more efficient than the full cohort design. The nested case—control study can be analyzed using methods for missing covariates. The NCC design is often used when the exposure of interest is difficult or expensive to obtain and when the outcome is rare.
