Sage Research methods datasets
The SAGE Research Methods Online database has over 500 datasets that are designed to support students with learning data analysis techniques. There are datasets for Qualitative and Quantitative analysis, suitable for SPSS and other research tools and methods.
A collection of sample datasets for teaching statistical and analytical techniques used in the social sciences. These are datasets taken from real research projects, but edited and "cleaned" for teaching purposes.
• Quantitative datasets drawn from large surveys, experiments, or government data sources, and simplified to make them easier to use.
• Qualitative datasets such as interview transcripts, field study notes, and visual aids.
Each dataset comes with an explanation of the analytical approach, an example to demonstrate the method, and a review to reinforce the material.
You can browse datasets by:
• Method, such as ANOVA, chi-square test, or thematic analysis
• Discipline, such as education, business, or political science
• Data type, such as survey data, case notes, or interview transcripts.
SAGE Research Methods Online is a component of the broader SAGE Research Methods Online, a comprehensive research tool to help with selecting, designing, and applying research methods.
