Qualitative Research

"Qualitative researchers study things in their natural settings, attempting to make sense of or interpret phenomena in terms of the meanings people bring to them” (Denzin & Lincoln, 2005).

This type of research focuses on ideas and experiences rather than statistics and numbers, which are traditionally covered under quantitative research.
