Relating and Predicting
Are there any strong relationships between key variables? The research problem may require another level of analysis – you may be interested in the relationship between variables. This is the kind of research that seeks not only to describe what is happening but also wants to examine how one factor impacts on another, asking questions like:
- Are there any strong relationships between the key variables?
- How significant is the difference between a and b?
- What would happen if we altered one variable in the future?
