The reason is that central banks react to variables, such as inflation and the output gap, which are endogenous to monetary policy shocks. Endogeneity implies a correlation between regressors and the error term, and hence, an asymptotic bias. In principle, Instrumental Variables IV estimation can solve this endogeneity problem. In practice, IV estimation poses challenges as the validity of potential instruments also depends on other economic relationships.
Introduction Perhaps the earliest use of technology in qualitative research was when researchers first used tape recorders in their field studies to record interview sessions.
In one sense this was clearly an easier way for researchers to keep a record of events and conversations, but it had two unforeseen consequences. First, it began to shift the effort of work in making a record of sessions from the researcher who traditionally took handwritten notes to others, such as secretaries and audio typists.
This separation had an impact not only on how close to or distant from the data the researcher could remain, but also on the relationship between the data and the emerging analytic ideas of the researcher. Having a recording and a transcript meant that new ways of thinking about how the analysis developed out of the data and how the analysis was supported by the data became possible.
Second, it allowed different kinds of analysis that could only be undertaken if accurate records of the speech were kept. This made possible a focus on the small scale and minute content and characteristics of speech. It also opened up the possibilities of much larger scale studies and the use of multiple researchers and analysts.
In the 21st century, the use of new technology still raises issues like what should be analysed, how it should be analysed and in what ways the knowledge and understanding gained are different and more or less well founded than those gained in more traditional ways.
The papers in this issue address both these impacts of the technology: Most researchers recognise that in most cases, the use of new technology usually affects both.
Data Gathering Audio recording is an analogue technology, as are film and traditional video. There is a long history of their use in many areas of social and psychological research and especially in anthropology.
Recent changes in this technology have taken several forms. First it has become cheaper and more widespread. This means that the technology is more available to researchers, but also that the people being researched are more used to being recorded by the technology and even familiar with using it themselves.
For example, in the case of video, people are now used to being recorded whether as part of a "holiday video" or as part of the now widespread CCTV Closed Circuit Television security systems. They are often familiar with making their own video recordings and with "reading" the wide variety of video material they are presented with.
Both the cheapness and ubiquity of the technology mean that there are new opportunities for researchers not only to record settings but also to use the technology to create new data. Naturally, the use of such technology raises issues of interpretation, impact and validity that researchers need to deal with.
Initially she used the images displayed on a laptop computer as a way of prompting teachers' discussion about their work practice. However, she found that they very quickly ignored the pictures and started more general discussions about their work practices. Consequently, she used printed versions of the photos as the basis of a group discussion amongst the researchers.
Whilst this prompted some creative thinking about teachers' front and back stage activities, it raised the important question of whether the researchers' interpretation of the photos was the same as teachers' actual experience.
Interaction patterns in task-oriented small groups discuss the use of the video analysis software, THEME, to identify communicative patterns in two distinct examples of task-oriented small group interaction. They focused on power-related and support-related behaviour as well as verbal and nonverbal patterns in the behaviour.
With the software they found two interaction patterns that it would have been hard to detect without the use of the software: Not only has this made the technology cheaper and more widely used, but also it has made possible new ways of manipulating and analysing the data collected.
This can be seen particularly in digital video where there is now some excellent software that can be used to display, examine and edit digital video recording in ways that are much easier and cheaper than non-digital video.
The software makes it possible to rearrange, present, and navigate through video in ways that were not possible before. Whereas previously research involved the arduous creation of written sequence narratives, now using the software, the researcher could select video clips of only those behaviours of interest and quickly inspect the relevant behaviours and come to analytical conclusions.
The former include discussion lists, text forums, personal Web pages and videoconferences. The latter include usage logs, text content logs as well as digitised recordings. As they point out, one key advantage here is that there is no need for transcription.research method was used to survey customers and data defined as "consumer buying behavior" which is consumed in order to meet the needs of consumers" .

Consumer behavior comprises all the consumer decisions and activities connected with choosing, buying, using, and disposing of goods and services. Have you ever wondered how weather and temperature impact a consumer’s buying behavior?
