different approaches will be used in the research: a macro social or
quantitative one and a micro social or qualitative.
macro-social approach will allow us to provide support to the
theoretical premises of a somewhat general nature to portray the
quantitative aspects of the research related to the specific aim
micro-social approach, on the other hand, will highlight the relative
nature of its conclusions, because the interpretation of experiences,
opinions and their meanings is essential, as they only are meaningful
within certain and limited situations, referring to specific cases
which will allow us to evidence the qualitative aspects.
division will facilitate information analysis and will also allow us
to synchronize both perspectives. If we just consider only one of
these approaches, this might lead us to a fragmented view, because
both approaches constitute an indivisible reality.
data compilation will be carried out through computer software to be
determined by the team, having the Atlas TI features.
