- to gain a better understanding of what being a father means to parents and children living in deprived areas, in a range of ethnic groups, in a modern multicultural Britain.


- to know there is a common model of fatherhood that applies to families living in deprived areas.

-Interpretivists approach: favour qualitative methods


-Positivists approach: favour quantitative methods


-Semi structured approach: generating qualitative data


-Time use diary approach: generating quantitative data

Approaches favoured by Interpretivist and Positivists...

Reliability & Validity

Reliability: being able to repeat data multiple times in order to generate similar findings. Validity: when data creates a true picture of social reality.

Reliability is not whether it is reliable..


Validity is not whether it is valid..

INTERPRETIVISTS

Favour qualitative data..


- gain rich, valid deep textual data which helps explore meanings and understanding behind behaviour and motives.


- gain VERSTEHEN


- respondents "open up" more when in a comfortable environment hence interviews held in family homes.


- data is thematically analysed.


- data collected from time use diaries is objective and value free and parents and children filled them in themselves.


- interviews were filmed so there is no need on relying on memory as true implications can be heard and seen.

They like data that provide MEANINGS...

POSITIVISTS

Favour data that has a quantitative approach...


- like data that provides a simple cause and effect


- like data that doesn't waste valuable time and resources


- like to make generalisations


-
