Dr Santanu Pramanik has presented on “Quality of Survey Data and Survey Estimates” on February 24th in a workshop in Research Methodology for Social Science scholars Organised by Madras Institute of Development Studies, Chennai. The workshop aims to address critical gaps in training social science researchers in the country. While doing this, it recognises the importance of both quantitative and qualitative traditions and their combinations in relevant contexts. Social scientists continue to follow the methodological development in natural sciences and technology studies to enhance their explanatory domain. At the same time, aggregate measures and estimates are better understood with the process through which they are estimated or with an emphasis on the subjective location of the researcher and the importance of interpretive, ethnographic methods. Specific objectives of the workshop …
1.to help research scholars build critical perspectives on dominant strands of research followed in theoretical and empirical research;
2.to expose scholars to key strategies, frameworks and tools followed in research design, critical review, and collection, processing, and analysis of data in quantitative and qualitative traditions; and
3.to expose scholars to recent developments and challenges in philosophy and practice of social science research.
