What is the Difference Between Quantitative and Qualitative Research?

An easy way to remember the difference between quantitative and qualitative research is to look at them as forms of storytelling. Quantitative research will give you a high-level view of your subject, a high-level answer to your question. Qualitative research will enable you to zoom in and identify the details in between that are responsible for the outcome, a more detailed explanation of why things happened the way they did. The combination of both types in a research project, if applicable, often produces the most powerful conclusions. 

What is Qualitative Research?

Helping customers identify and analyze the “why” is what methinks specializes in and is always working toward.
