What are the uses of qualitative research?
Qualitative research is a form of inquiry that analyzes information conveyed through language and behavior in natural settings. It is used to capture expressive information not conveyed in quantitative data about beliefs, values, feelings, and motivations that underlie behaviors.
Why qualitative research is important in our daily life?
It provides an in-depth understanding of the ways people come to understand, act and manage their day-to-day situations in particular settings. Qualitative research uses words and images to help us understand more about “why” and “how” something is happening (and, sometimes “what” is happening).
Who uses qualitative research?
It is most commonly used to help inform new concepts, theories and products. First developed within the social sciences, qualitative research is now widely used to inform market research, by gaining unique consumer insight from a wealth of data.
What makes qualitative research a study of real life?
A qualitative case study examines a phenomenon within its real-life context. Data are collected on or about a single individual, group, or event. In some cases, several cases or events may be studied. Knowledge from the study is then used to apply to other cases and contexts.
