Qualitative Research

Discipline: Methodology

Social research that aims to describe or understand particular cases with the objective to attain an in-depth understanding of the issues in question.

Accordingly, qualitative research employs methods such as participant observation, archival research, structures and unstructured interviews, content analysis and process tracing.

Qualitative analysis does not employ the use of numbers or statistics, and thus is contrasted with quantitative research.
