A(n) is a detailed study of the life and activities of a group of people in which researchers may live with that group over a period of years.


The answer is: an ethnography.


Ethnography is a research method that consists of the study of the everyday life of a group of people. When social researchers first began using this method, it was common for them to live with the group they were studying over a period of years, since they focused on the study of foreign cultures. However, although ehnography still implies the submersion of the researcher into the community or culture he is studying, it doesn't necessarily have to be a foreign non occidental culture.

Within this method, researchers can use several research techniques to gather data, participant and non participant observation, interviews, etc.
