Need help with my Writing question – I’m studying for my class.
Post a thread outlining the benefits of quantitative versus qualitative research and explain which you have chosen to be a part of your research proposal and why. Include in your explanation any challenges you think you may face and the benefit one method may have over the other.
Please read the following:
Quantitative research provides numerical data, while qualitative research provides non-numerical data. Each of the research methods has unique benefits in human service research. A quantitative technique is appropriate for the collection of facts on the relationship between different variables. The use of descriptive or inferential statistics for analysis of the data provides a key strength in understanding a population. Quantitative research collects data from a large sample, hence providing the statistical power to define the results (Madrigal, & McClain, 2012, September 3).
