Why is it important?

Joint displays are generally framed as an endpoint used during reporting to summarize findings and to provide transparency about the research process. They can, however, serve as data and provide a tool to integrate all kinds of data about a case.


Data about the same construct rarely align in a complex mixed method study. Case based analysis can provide a way to explore differences between groups or to compare those who do and do not benefit from an intervention in expected ways.
