In psychology, quantitative and qualitative analysis are two regularly used approaches to examine phenomena and analyse data. There are many factors you must consider in order to determine the best approach to examine phenomena and analyse data. These include phenomena you plan to examine, the research question(s) you hope to answer, and the type of data you intend to collect. These factors inform which approach you may take.
