We now have access to sample datasets 

Researchers exploring new statistical techniques often find that hands-on practice is essential to the learning process. Master new methods with sample datasets before applying them to your own data. The datasets included in Sage Research Methods Datasets are taken from government sources and academic research and demonstrate both qualitative and quantitative methods. Each dataset is presented with an easy-to-follow, step-by-step guide to best demonstrate how the method is applied. 

Datasets can be found by method, discipline or data type. Each content page includes: 

  • A definition and illustrative example of the method 
  • A description of the data 
  • Instruction on how to apply the method to the data 
  • Tips for presenting the findings 
  • A link to the original complete dataset or research project when available¬†
