Quantitative Research

Quantitative research provides a measure of what people think from a statistical and numerical point of view. It gathers a large amount of data that can be easily organised and manipulated into reports for analysis.

Quantitative research methods include questionnaires and surveys with set questions and answers or scaled responses. Quantitative research may be carried out by phone, online, by mail or in person.
