Interview 2 Schedule

 

The interview topic guide was designed to meet objectives that included: generating data relevant to our research questions; facilitating comparison between interviews; catching up on the period between interviews; recognising the nature of the relationship between the researcher and the interviewee; and enabling comparability between our study and a parallel study undertaken by our Finnish collaborators: Tracing Transitions. (See for example: Gordon, T., Holland, J., Lahelma, E. and Thomson, R.(2005) Imagining Gendered Adulthood: Anxiety, ambivalence, avoidance and anticipation. European Journal of Women's Studies, 12 (1): 83-103. Lahelma, E. and Gordon, T.  (2003) Home as a physical, social and mental space: Young people's reflections on leaving home, Journal of Youth Studies, 6 (4): 277-390).

Interviews (N=121) took on average 1 1/2 hours and were recorded on audio cassette tapes. Issues of consent, confidentiality and anonymity were reconfirmed at the start and end of the interview. Data included the audio tapes and transcriptions of interviews, together with researchers' field notes.
