Understanding Qualitative vs. Quantitative Research

Welcome to Academics Illustrated! Have you ever wondered what the difference between quantitative and qualitative data is? It has a lot to do with the questions that the researcher is attempting to answer. Listen along as we doodle and chat about the different types of data, what goes into gathering them, and how they are defined. We discuss a few examples of both types of data, referencing the work of researchers such as Gregor Mendel and Jane Goodall (who is the primary subject of our drawing), and what categories their work fall into. We also explore the anthropological qualities of quantitative research, to the more numerically oriented results of quantitative research, and how neither of them are exclusive from the other. This video is perfect for anyone looking for a casual, relaxing way to study academic topics, and we hope that it helps you on your academic journey!
