What are Mixed Methods?

Mixed Methods are a series of research methods approaches that use both qualitative data and quantitative data to examine a research question.

Mixed Methods are a newer research technique with roots in community based research where people want to understand a phenomenon both with statistical analysis and qualitative approaches. 

This guide walks you through types of methods (e.g. quantitative, qualitative, mixed) as well as different types of mixed methods approaches (e.g. sequential explanatory design).
