DXJ Writer :

Qualitative research examines the contextual factors of a particular research question, examines it in a more holistic or comprehensive fashion. It does so through methods such as participant observation, structured observation, interviews, etc. Examples of such research might include focus groups selected for in-depth interviews. The responses would be assessed through numerous means. Notably, surveys could be considered qualitative even though the results are quantified.

Quantitative research generally observes and records events, occurrences or addresses the question through an experiment or via data exploration. For example, to determine the number of actions or likelihood of accidents on the job, one could examine the question by extracting the statistics pertinent to accidents for the year, comparing and contrasting that with the number of officers who worked that year and compiling the likelihood of accidents. Of course, this process could be further refined and examine these results via division and shift. However, this method does not necessarily provide contextual clues qualitative interviews might provide. Researchers using these statistics might not know whether a particular case was unusual or a particular type of crime dramatically changed the accident statistics.

Do you have a cite for your definitions??

Surveys can be qualitative or quantitative depending on how they function, what they are asking, and how. Would you like to provide some insight on this point - anyone?

Surveys can be quantitative relative to number of purchases, number of times certain actions were taken, etc. Although the self-reported results like this are generally weaker than the observed events, they can be evaluated and assessed through analysis of other data (receipts, demographics, known behavior patterns, etc).


Surveys are also qualitative in nature when they ask about graded experiences.

For example, how likely are you to buy a mocha latte?

Structured responses usually include 1-5 ratings from no to definitely.


Does that help?

Customer: replied 5 years ago.

Yes, somewhat....she also asked for the website you used for the definitions.

I didn't use a website, I breezed through my library in my house.

Too many years of study and Anthropology :-)
