This is the first text to advance beyond traditional methods of research about promoting community health by presenting a new paradigm for emerging methodologies that integrate qualitative and quantitative research methods. Written for graduate students of public health and practicing researchers alike, the book highlights new technologies and methodologies that facilitate a more fluid use of integrated methods and interdisciplinary expertise. This new paradigm stresses the effects of "place"--socioeconomic disadvantage, access to health care, quality of housing--as having great relevance for health outcomes. Use of these new research methods will provide greater insight into how and why contextual and community factors impact health and for developing more effective intervention programs.
