The SAGE Handbook of Measurement is a unique methodological resource in which Walford, Viswanathan, and Tucker draw together contributions from the authors of the classic works in Measurement studies of the past twenty five years.
Each chapter focuses on a different aspect of Measurement, so that the Handbook as a whole covers the full spectrum of core issues related to design, method, and analysis within measurement studies.
The Handbook covers the full range of disciplines where Measurement studies are common; policy studies, education studies, health studies, business studies, etc.
