Applied Research Methods with Hidden, Marginal and Excluded Populations 
School in Social Science Data Analysis, University of Essex (UK)
30 July - 3 August 2012

The course (8th Edition) provides an introduction to research methods in
conducting research, both qualitative and quantitative, with marginal, hidden
and excluded populations, with a specific focus on equity related research.
The course introduces the main theories and research approaches on
hard-to-reach populations using different frameworks and techniques. 

This intensive course will provide tools to address key issues such as the
lack of known sampling frame; the difficulties in reaching the target group;
the concepts of impact, attribution and contribution; and the political
dimension of research findings. The course explores topics such as:
estimation and sampling techniques; participatory research; evidence-based
policy versus policy-based evidence; innovation, crowdsourcing and the use of
technology; the art of combining qualitative and quantitative methods; and
ethical considerations arising when conducting research with hidden and
marginalized populations.

A course description and detailed outline are available at
