Looking into housing: A practical guide to housing research

To help you appreciate the interlinked dimensions of the research process, this book sets out to explain: the reasons that may lie behind the planning of new research; the mechanisms that help determine the type of research questions posed; how the specific focus of a research study is decided; how and why specific methods are adopted; how to develop research tools that involve and empower tenants and service users; how models can be employed for testing and comparison purposes; how and why the belief systems and backgrounds of researchers influence research findings; what checks and fail-safe procedures are needed; what skills are required to properly analyse research data; and how both the dissemination and subsequent use of research work is managed.
