Ethnography is an off-shoot of the social science discipline of anthropology. It refers to the study of naturally occurring social interactions, behaviors and perceptions.
Unlike other research methodologies, the role of the observer/interviewer is minimal in ethnographic research; allowing them to obtain neutral results from the study.
As the limitations of self-reported market research data become more widely understood, ethnography is poised to become a crucial tool in market research, yielding deep and actionable insights.
