This purpose of this SIG is to provide a platform for the sharing of knowledge and expertise and the development of research capacity across Queen’s in relation to the use of quantitative methods with children and young people. The SIG brings together academics, researchers and postgraduate students from a range of different schools and disciplines.
The SIG covers all types of quantitative data collection methods and forms of statistical analysis used in research with children and young people including: the design and use of questionnaires and online surveys; the use of existing social, health and wellbeing instruments and child development measures; the development of new measures; systematic reviews and other forms of research syntheses and meta-analyses; and the use of relevant multivariate techniques for the analysis of data from randomised controlled trials, longitudinal studies, surveys and large and complex datasets.
The SIG have now established a Facebook page to facilitate online discussions and also to advertise and promote events. Membership of the Facebook Group is open to all SIG members. If you would like to join please click on the logo below.
