This chapter covers the final three steps of the nine-step process for conducting mixed methods research in social work. It begins by describing how to prepare qualitative and quantitative data for analysis, then provides some helpful techniques for efficiently coding and analyzing qualitative data. A basic description of how to analyze quantitative data is provided, as well as how it can be used to provide descriptive statistics (such as crosstabs, frequencies, and distributions), measures of central tendency, measures of variability, and measures of association. The chapter also briefly discusses how to maximize rigor and the relevance of analysis procedures for analyzing qualitative and quantitative data. The chapter concludes with some useful tips on the actual “mixing” of mixed methods research, the various points in time during which mixing can occur, and the ways data can be integrated and interpreted.

Keywords:   mixed methods, statistics, coding, analyzing descriptive statistics, association, variability, difference, rigor
