Quantitative research is based on acquiring statistical information to describe numerical values of information. This form of research requires numerical values as parameters, and is often related to quantitative assessments based on 'mass' data, as a measure of the size and scope of an issue or situation. In many cases quantitative research is also primary research, which is then linked to qualitative research and analyses of issues.
Examples of Quantitative Research:
|Income statistics are a common form of quantitative research, using income brackets and bandwidths to form the basis of research into disposable incomes, the effect of interest rates, and similar studies.|
