Reintegrating studies of organizations, work and health: some methodological experiences
2010 (English)In: The dynamics of organization and healthy work / [ed] Staffan Marklund, Annika Härenstam, Växjö: Institutionen för samhällsvetenskaper, Linnéuniversitetet , 2010, no 5Chapter in book (Other academic)
Integrating data at the macro-level, such as changes in the labour market, data at the meso-level such as phenomena in organisations and workplaces, and data at the micro-level such as individual’s working conditions and health is indeed a complex matter. A single study alone can seldom work out the problems of generalisation, hypothesis testing, and a deeper understanding of new as well as previously known occurrences and processes within the realm of complex systems.
The authors of this chapter present some experiences of integrating data at several levels. Some of these experiences emanate from the chapters presented in this book, while others are from other projects. Methodologies based on a quantitative approach as well as experiences of using qualitative methods are presented.
