“Thick Description” in Qualitative Research:
Thick description refers to the researcher’s task of both describing and interpreting observed social action (behavior) within its context. The context can be within a smaller unit (such as a couple, a family, a work environment) or within a larger unit (such as one’s village, a community, or general culture). Thick description accurately describes observed social actions and assigns purpose and intentionality to these actions, by way of the researcher’s understanding and clear description of the context under which the social actions took place. Thick description captures the thoughts and feelings of participants as well as the often-complex web of relationships among them. Thick description leads to thick interpretation, which in turns leads to thick meaning of the research findings for the researchers and participants themselves, and for the report’s intended readership. Thick meaning of findings leads readers to a sense of verisimilitude, wherein they can cognitively and emotively “place” themselves within the research context.
Example of Thick Description in Practice:
The context for the quote is from Melba Vasquez describing her early childhood school experiences as a Mexican American female in a small central Texas town in the 1950s. In this scenario she is describing a day on her school bus.
One day, a large White boy, about two or three years older, who often bullied us all, came and roughly pushed my sister and me into a corner of our seat because he wanted to sit in that space, across from his friends. I remember the fear and humiliation I felt for myself and my sister. Yet, we did nothing but sit silently, squashed by his large size. An African American young girl, about his size, saw what happened, and came up, pushed his shoulder and said in a very loud assertive voice, “What are you doing? You can’t do that to them. They’re sitting there, can’t you see, and you’re crowding them. Move. Now!” He looked at her defiantly and said, “This isn’t your business.” She glared back and said, “It is now.” The whole bus got quiet. She repeated in a low voice, “Move. Now.” He got up and moved. The young Black girl went to her seat, came back, gave us each a piece of hard candy, and watched over us and others like us for the rest of the year.
