Abstract

Where economics is dominated by a monolithic methodology of axiomatic theorizing and econometric analysis of secondary datasets, multiple and mixed methods research offers a much and richer toolkit to examine economic problems from a variety of perspectives with custom methods suited for the particular task. Rather than limiting analysis to the application of approved methods to an approved dataset, with little consideration of its content, a multiple or mixed method approach inherently interrogates choices and limitations of data and methods from the outset.

This chapter aims to equip readers with a grounding in the principles of multiple and mixed methods research and to consider benefits and limitations of triangulation of methods, issues in research design, choices of methods and their integration, and issues of validity and ethics.
