2. Quantitative data: As the name itself signifies that the term Quantitative data indicates a quantity. It is a measure of quantity which can be a pure number, a count, ratio, percentage or value. This data gives us the clear result/measure of the things which are comparable to each other numerically. The examples may include weight of your body, height, length of a cloth or area of a land (Thomas, D.F., Gudmundson, Turner and Suhr, 2014).
Qualitative data: As compared to the former, qualitative data cannot be expressed as a number. It can be used to represent a nominal data. But as far as the statistical analysis is considered, only quantitative data can be analyzed using that. Considering the example of a poor community, we can analyze to what extent that community has been empowered, which falls under the qualitative analysis (Galegher, Kraut and Egido, 2014). A strong monitoring and evaluation system must be developed to keep check of both the data. There are also several tools in use today that are fruitful in the monitoring of the data like-
- Register and other records
- Sample based surveys
- Group Discussions
3. For the data validity, two main dimensions are considered-
- Internal validity: It is associated with the degree of certainty that the outcome of an experiment is actually the result of the experimental treatment.
- External validity: It is applied to real world in which the degree of research finding can be implemented.
For ensuring the quality of the data, we can ensure the following measure-
- Making sure the data are valid and reliable
- Survey reliability and validity
- Developing a survey of high response rate.
4. When it comes to data analysis, people are often snobby for quantitative method of analysis. This method involves results that are purely numerical and can be used for statistical analysis too. This data doesn’t have any scope of biasing as a large amount of data is gathered which is not in the case of qualitative method.
5. The data can be presented using two methods-textual graphics or visual graphics.
Textual graphics: We use text to create a visual message mainly using the tables. Excel is a primary example of creating a textual graphics
Visual Graphics: It is used to show relationship of data or a pattern. It is basically presented through bar, pie and line charts. These charts depict a specific relationship as a part of what we want to convey (Van De Walle, Turoff and Hiltz, 2014).
