This course is all about how research is conducted in the filed of population studies and what are the major methods and techniques which are employed to reach conclusions.
Just like in any other field, the goal of the research process in population studies is to produce new knowledge or deepen understanding of a topic or issue. This process takes three main forms:
Ø Exploratory research, which helps to identify and define a problem or question.
Ø Constructive research, which tests theories and proposes solutions to a problem or question.
There are two major types of empirical research design: qualitative research and quantitative research.
This involves understanding human behavior and the reasons that govern such behavior, by asking a broad question, collecting data in the form of words, images, video etc. that is analyzed, and searching for themes.
This involves systematic empirical investigation of quantitative properties and phenomena and their relationships, by asking a narrow question and collecting numerical data to analyze it utilizing statistical methods.
Non-empirical (theoretical) research is an approach that involves the development of theory as opposed to using observation and experimentation.
All the essential steps of research process shall be discussed in detail in this subject.
