Description - Essentials of Ideal-Type Analysis: A Qualitative Approach to Constructing Typologies by Emily Stapley

The brief, practical texts in the Essentials of Qualitative Methods series introduce social science and psychology researchers to key approaches to capturing phenomena not easily measured quantitatively, offering exciting, nimble opportunities to gather in-depth qualitative data.

This volume is ideal for qualitative researchers who want to explore individual cases in depth but also build an understanding of patterns across multiple cases. The authors introduce readers to ideal-type analysis, a method for forming typologies from qualitative data. They present the background to this approach, the steps required to conduct an ideal-type analysis, and guidance on writing up a study using this method. Filled with practical examples and tips, the book serves as an ideal introduction to a qualitative method that is not yet widely known.
