What is the difference between quantitative and qualitative research? Provide an example of each.
Qualitative research collects descriptive data that is often unquantifiable. An example of this would be an ethnographic study of a population, or a survey with open-ended questions. Quantitative research uses quantifiable variables, and uses numerically based analysis. An example of this would be a survey without open ended questions (such as having respondents answer questions on a scale of 1 to 5), or a study that utilizes statistical data to draw wider conclusions.
