This article illustrates the use of triangulation in a study of refugee well-being. While the study was driven by a qualitative paradigm, information and data from qualitative and quantitative methods were integrated in order to fully explore, describe and understand the phenomena being studied. Hence, through triangulating information and data from an ethnographic interview, demographic and health questionnaires, and observations, the subjective and objective aspects of refugee experience and well-being were fully revealed. The advantages of triangulation, its pitfalls, and the controversy surrounding this methodology within the scientific health community are discussed. Finally, the author offers recommendations pertaining to the use of methodological triangulation for other investigators who might consider employing this design in future research.
