Dynamic Pattern Synthesis (DPS) :  A mixed method for exploring longitudinal patterns in social science data.

Dynamic Pattern Synthesis (DPS) is a new mixed method designed by Philip Haynes that seeks to maximise the advantages of Cluster Analysis and Qualitative Comparative Analysis (QCA) to search for dynamic patterns in data. First trials with the method have been with macro country comparisons, including a study of the first ten years of the Euro currency membership -  seeking to understand the complexities of economic convergence and divergence. This also included comparing welfare state regimes from the first twelve Euro member countries.
