Applying the Results and Conclusion of the Research Process to Childhood Obesity Delores Jones HCS/465 May 7,2012 Radha Ramjattan Applying the Results and Conclusion of the Research Process to Childhood Obesity Data collection and Analysis procedures are essential parts to the research process. To get valid results, the data collection has to be correct and the technique of getting the data needs to fit the research study profile. Quantitative methods and qualitative methods are the two basic methods are involved in a research study. The quantitative method as we know is all about surveys or test. It involves hard data or numerical meanings, it is more experimental or statistical and is known for more about social facts. Qualitative methods are more of a natural setting, or a study case. It involves observation, and is more concerned with the process than the outcome (Neutens & Rubinson, 2010). The research study on this paper is about childhood obesity among children in the United States. In this paper, I will respond to questions, such as the data collection procedures and how they are appropriate for this study. The right steps that are appropriate that have been taken to protect the subjects rights, and the way the data collection tool was used to support the reliability and validity of the study. As well as the ways the data analysis procedures are appropriate for the data collection. The ways the data analysis procedures are appropriate for answering the research questions or for testing the hypothesis or both. And explain the difference between qualitative and quantitative data. The data collection procedures are so the researchers can decide on the best methods that are appropriate, so they can achieve the most accurate results of their studies. These procedures can consist of surveys, in-depth conversations, and statistic for prior studies.
