Example text

Thus the book came to have a dual focus: half is concerned to describe kinship patterns in Bethnal Green, and half to assess the consequences for family life of the move made by some Bethnal Greeners to the new estate of 'Greenleigh'. This gives it a certain ambivalence, and perhaps means that each subject is treated less fully than it otherwise might have been. Several samples were used: a general sample of 933 adults in Bethnal Green, drawn from the Electoral Register, and interviewed with short factual schedules by hired interviewers; a 'marriage sample' of 45 couples with two or more children under 15, drawn from the general sample, and interviewed at greater length and with a much less structured schedule by the researchers themselves and a colleague; and a similar 'marriage sample' of 4 7 couples interviewed in the same way, drawn from former inhabitants of Bethnal Green who had moved to Greenleigh.

Attractive as the idea is of involving far more people in research, some of them given special ad hoc training courses to equip them for it, this does seem likely to generate a lot of rather poor research. The more there is, the harder it is for anyone to keep up with it all and sort out the good from the bad; and so the more likely it is that much will remain uncriticised, and that the natural affection for one's own results and interpretations will lead to a confusion of conflicting views rather than an emergent consensus.

41 3 Research Methods: The Old Tradition If we were to construct a stereotype of the methods used in the typical book-length report of the Institute of Community Studies, it would go something like this: The survey was, of course, done in Bethnal Green, and the book opens with a picturesque and graphic account of the area in general and of the more striking aspects of the lives of the people studied. The subject is a problem of social policy, and the survey is concerned with those at the receiving end of it, in particular as it affects and is affected by their family relationships.
