The perception of deviant behaviours by young people: triangulating survey and focus group data
Starting with a reconstruction of the debate on triangulation and its purposes in social sciences, this case seeks to clarify the technique of triangulation by conducting a critical analysis of the goals of integrating different data-collection instruments. In the second part, a practical example of integration between two research techniques is given: surveys and focus groups. By applying this triangulation to an investigation on the perception of juvenile deviance, it is possible to identify the advantages and limitations of this strategy
