Quantitative Data

- Can be analysed statistically and easily converted into percentages, averages, graphs etc

- eg how much, how long or how many

Qualitative Data

- Describes participants in more depth

- eg opinions, attitudes, ideas, feelings etc

- Focuses on personal details

- More difficult to analyse but is richer and more meaningful
