Appropriateness refers to the degree to which the choice of informants and method "fit" the purpose of the study as determined by the research questions and stage of the research. The fit of any participant was determined by characteristics of her being female; self-reporting that she considers herself to have a relationship with her daughter, mother, and/or grandmother, interacting with the other family participants a minimum of one time per week; and her willingness to share her constructions about these relationships.
