Abstract

German Abstract: Mixed-Methods-Studien erfreuen sich wachsender Beliebtheit. Immer mehr Studien nutzen dabei auch Panel-basierte Mixed-Methods-Designs, in denen bestehende Längsschnittstudien durch qualitative Befragungsformen ergänzt werden. Innerhalb der reichhaltigen Veröffentlichungen zum Thema Mixed-Methods-Forschung finden sich bisher aber kaum Diskussionen solcher Mixed-Methods-Designs. Im vorliegenden Artikel diskutieren wir Design, Durchführung, sowie Potenziale und Herausforderungen von Panel-basierten Mixed-Methods-Studien. Dabei stützen wir uns auf ein DFG-gefördertes Mixed-Methods-Projekt zur Analyse des Erwachsenwerdens von MigrantInnennachkommen in Deutschland auf Basis des SOEP.

English Abstract: Mixed methods studies enjoy ever-growing popularity. More and more studies use panel-based mixed methods designs, in which existing longitudinal survey studies are complemented by qualitative data. However, in the rich literature on mixed methods methodology, so far panel-based mixed methods design have not been discussed extensively. In the present paper, we discuss the design, implementation, as well as specific potentials and challenges of panel-based mixed methods studies. To do so, we use the study "The Descendants of Immigrants in Germany Coming of Age“ as an example, a DFG-funded panel-based mixed methods study that draw on the German Socio-Economic Panel."
