About Quantitative Research

"Quantitative research is a systematic process used to gather and statistically analyze information that has been measured by an instrument. Instruments are used to convert information into numbers. It studies only quantifiable concepts (concepts that can be measured and turned into numbers)." It examines phenomenon through the numerical representation of observations and statistical analysis.
