The Meaning of Numbers Doctoral Workshop 2 follows on from the first workshop held in The University of Manchester in December 2017. While the first workshop was designed to get participants to think about appropriate ways of framing research questions and for selecting methods of quantitative data collection and analysis to address these questions, the second workshop was intended to stimulate a reflection on what we do with quantitative research in the built environment and the impacts of numbers on policy, practice and research.
