In this chapter I will outline some of the things which researchers need to take into account in making a choice. An important point to make at the start is that this chapter will focus only on choosing a method of data analysis and not of data collection which was addressed in chapter 5 of the same book. Readers might find it helpful to read these chapters in conjunction since, as noted in that chapter, it is important that you collect data that: map onto your research questions; sufficiently warrant the kind of claims you will wish to make; and which match the epistemological assumptions of your method of analysis.
