Methods of Research on Human Development and Families is an introduction to quantitative and qualitative research methods
that teaches readers how to be intelligent and critical consumers of research on families. This new book has been adapted
from the author team's previous SAGE text, Methods of Family Research, and includes applications and examples from both family
science and human development research. With a focus on interpreting and understanding research techniques rather than doing
research, this text illustrates how research on families is conducted and helps students gain the competence and confidence
to effectively read, interpret, and critique published research reports.
