This chapter aims to give a realistic account of how to select a method and so provide the reader with a guiding introduction to the methods that follow. It argues that the choice of method to aid policymaking will reflect a range of factors. For example, the breadth and range of evidence that is already available, or the need to gain insights from hard to reach citizens.
