Summary "This is the first resource dedicated to critically examining gender and sex study design, methods, and analysis in health research. The authors draw attention to the methodological complexities, and offer ways to thoughtfully address these by drawing on empirical examples across a range of topics and disciplines"-- Provided by publisher.
"This book will fill this void by contributing a comprehensive resource to locate empirically-informed approaches to research design, methods, and analysis relevant to gender, sex and health research. It is clear that generic methods are insufficient. Indeed, the lack of integration of sex and gender into research practices has led to poor science in some instances, where the impact of sex, gender and related considerations has been overlooked in design, method, and analysis. The purpose of this book is to provide the first resource dedicated to critically examining gender and sex study design, methods, and analysis in health research. The authors draw attention to the methodological complexities, and offer ways to thoughtfully address these by drawing on empirical examples across a range of topics and disciplines"-- Provided by publisher.
