Research Methodology


The process of conducting research entails specific procedures and techniques that need to be followed. These procedures outline how information regarding a topic will be selected, processed and analyzed. Additionally, this is also where a reader finds out the reliability and validity of the study, thus giving it the scientific touch. There are different types of research methodology chosen depending on the nature of the study. The two board types are qualitative and quantitative. There are four main types of quantitative research designs: descriptive, correlational, quasi-experimental and experimental while there are 5 types of qualitative research: ethnography, narrative, phenomenological, grounded theory, and case study (Creswell & Clark, 2017). This study intends to determine reasons why children under the age of 5 are not vaccinated/immunized. The researcher identified political problems and wants to help readers understand the importance and benefits of immunizing children under the ae of 5. Therefore, the study will be qualitative in nature, specifically a descriptive study. This will allow the researcher to provide a better and deeper understanding as to why vaccination of children under the age of five is important. It makes this possible by allowing inquiries to be done on participants. Results from such a study form a firm basis for policy decision making, something that the researcher aims to achieve.
