PRACTICAL RESEARCH II

First Semester, School Year 2019-2020

THE IMPORTANCE OF QUANTITATIVE RESEARCH


Quantitative Research has truly its relevance and importance for us to qualify
certain problems. It used to qualify the problem by generating numerical data or data that
can be transformed into usable statistics. It is used to quantify attitudes, opinions,
behaviors, and other variables – and to generalize results from a larger sample size.
Quantitative research uses measurable data to formulate facts and uncover patterns in
research. Quantitative Data collection methods are much more structured than Qualitative
data collection methods. Quantitative Research has its different significance. Below are
some of the most common importance of Quantitative Research:
 It is more steadfast and unbiased.
 It uses statistics to take a broad view of a finding or study.
 It often narrow down a complex problem to a limited number of variables.
 It gazes at associations between variables and can create cause and effect in
highly controlled conditions.
 It tests theories or hypotheses.
 It assumes that a sample is representative of the population.
 Little subjectivity on the part of a researcher.
 It is less detailed than qualitative data and it may miss a desired response from the
participant.

As we may see on the given statements, we should reach all of the importance
given for us to have a great and tremendous Quantitative Research. If we were not able
to follow all of these, we will not be having a wonderful product.
Quantitative data collection methods include various surveys – online surveys, paper
surveys, mobile surveys and kiosk surveys, face-to-face interviews, telephone
interviews, longitudinal studies, website inceptors, online polls, and systematic
observation.
