Qualitative Research Quantitative Research
Objective / purpose
  • To gain an understanding of underlying reasons and motivations
  • To provide insights into the setting of a problem, generating ideas and/or hypotheses for later quantitative research
  • To uncover prevalent trends in thought and opinion
  • To quantify data and generalize results from a sample to the population of interest
  • To measure the incidence of various views and opinions in a chosen sample
  • Sometimes followed by qualitative research which is used to explore some findings further
Sample Usually a small number of non-representative cases. Respondents selected to fulfil a given quota. Usually a large number of cases representing the population of interest. Randomly selected respondents.
Data collection Unstructured or semi-structured techniques e.g. individual depth interviews or group discussions. Structured techniques such as online questionnaires, on-street or telephone interviews.
Data analysis Non-statistical. Statistical data is usually in the form of tabulations (tabs). Findings are conclusive and usually descriptive in nature.
Outcome Exploratory and/or investigative. Findings are not conclusive and cannot be used to make generalizations about the population of interest. Develop an initial understanding and sound base for further decision making. Used to recommend a final course of action.
