Product Description

From the Back Cover

Back Cover Copy- McGivern

 

"We cannot recommend this book highly enough. In one volume, Yvonne McGivern has compiled an overview of all aspects of Market and Social Research. This is a must for all research practitioners, from raw novice, to the technically skilled old-hand." Clive Warren, Partner, CSA Recruitment, London, England

 

 

The Practice of Market and Social Research: An Introduction, 2e, provides a

comprehensive account of the techniques of market and social research and the practical

tasks involved in setting up and running research projects—from identifying the problem

to be researched through to reporting and evaluating the findings.

 

McGivern’s book covers qualitative and quantitative techniques, including a chapter on

the analysis of qualitative data—a topic which few texts in this market cover.

 

“An excellent introductory text for those seeking to find out more about market or social research

and          a must have for those studying the MRS Advanced Certificate in Market and Social Research.”

Tamzie Hollands, MRS Course Leader, KingstonManagement Centre

 

Packed with real-life examples of research in action, the book is aimed at those preparing

for the MRS Advanced Certificate in Market and Social Research, at those doing

undergraduate and post-graduate courses with a research module and/or a requirement to

produce a research project or dissertation, and at research practitioners.

 

“I've used this book a huge amount and found it invaluable.  I used it at work to help me set up research with radio listeners in the developing world and I've used it to help me plan research for my MBA dissertation.  It guided me through the whole research process.  Everything is clearly explained and very easy to follow.” Tim Moock, MBA Student, Universityof Bradford

Format: Paperback
Yvonne’s book is excellent, very easy to read and understand. The book covers all different areas of Market and Social Research (e.g. planning, designing, conducting, implementing…etc), step-by-step and in a simple and easy to understand language.
I have used her book for work and for my MA course in Market and Social Research. In particular, it has been a great help with my MA assignments.
I hope she will carry on publishing updates of her book on regular basis.
Thanks Yvonne, and please keep up the good work.
