3.2.2 Quantitative VS Qualitative According to Yin (2003), there are two types of research approach. This includes quantitative research approach and qualitative research approach. A quantitative research emphasizes on transforming the data to numbers, quantities and statistics to formulate facts and to uncover patterns in a research. It addresses research purposes through empirical analysis that involve numerical measurement, the relationship between variables and analysis approaches (Zikmund et al., 2010). The sample size being investigated is typically large (Anderson, 2006). Quantitative research mainly uses questionnaires, surveys and other equipment to collect numerical or measurable data (Anderson, 2006). On the other hand, a qualitative research typically emphasizes words more than numbers
EVALUATION DATA RESEARCH Qualitative research seeks to answer the “why” and not the “how” of the research project that is being conducted, this is done through a complex system of analyzing unstructured information such as survey’s , questionnaires, interviews, interview transcripts, open end survey’s, focus groups, observations, emails, notes, video’s, feed back forms and photo’s; most of the time a qualitative report won’t depend on statistical evidence alone it must be accompanied by detailed facts and proven facts and not hypotheses or in accurate data, this can lead to misunderstanding of data findings and can through the whole aim of the research project off and waste valuable time.

1.2 Research objectives: The following are the key objectives to ensure the above purpose achieved: *Analyze the effects of financial ratios on PepsiCo over 2013-2016. *Analyze the sustainability issues which impacts PepsiCo's profitability. *To analyze the level of dividend on shareholders *Quantitative method defined as testing something and measuring it by numbers. *Mixed process it is a combination of collecting both qualitative and quantitative data. Driscoll, Yeboah, Salib, & Rupert, (2007) discussed the advantages and disadvantages of qualitative and quantitative methods. For example, the benefit of qualitative is the researcher will get more detailed data with a lot of written descriptions because the respondent will have the freedom to answer. But the disadvantage is it will take a longer time to do. On the other hand, for the quantitative method the strength of this technique that the researcher can measure the data and analyze it by using statistics, but it has weakness such as it needs a large number of populations to reach to more accurate

Qualitative and Quantitative Approaches RES/351 June 17, 2014 University of Phoenix Professor Pamela Campbell Qualitative and Quantitative Approaches Business researchers utilize various forms of approaches to analyze and obtain information and data, and two of the most popular approaches used are the qualitative research approach and quantitative research approach. Each approach can be beneficial or in some cases may cause inconclusive results depending on the type of research being conducted and what the nature of the study is. The following will assess two different peer reviewed articles: one which uses a qualitative approach and the other a quantitative approach. It
The researcher must set a clear hypothesis, showing the relationship between independent and dependent variables. In quantitative research tools are used to collect numerical data. The information can be gathered using questionnaires or some type of equipment. Quantitative data is efficient at testing a hypothesis, but can miss contextual detail. In quantitative research, the researcher is often objectively separated from the subject matter. One of the ways quantitative research is different from qualitative research is that quantitative research requires extraction of large amounts of statistical data. Qualitative research is focused in on personal viewpoints and opinions of a smaller number of subjects (typically). Qualitative research can take more time than quantitative research (McCusker & Gunaydin,
Quantitative Data Secondly the business would need to collect Quantitative Data. Quantitative is data that can be measured or can be counted. This type of data is the complete of opposite of qualitative data
Quantitative research: In quantitative researches, surveys are conducted to collect numerical data. Most of the surveys include close-ended questions which are less time consuming. It is quite easy to collect such data as consumers tend to be more co-operative. The collected data is further analyzed for a proper conclusion.
Combining quantitative and qualitative data to evaluate the balance of data ensures the understanding of information. If the company can focus its attention on the quantitative and qualitative studies will help identify issues and obtain information on some variables that could match organizational goals. With this method, the company will combine independent data and interpret it for conclusion.
• Research methods purposes; • Types of sampling; • Data collection procedures; • Data analysis techniques; and • Conclusions that can be drawn from data analysis. Compare and contrast quantitative and qualitative methods on each of the elements listed. Please use scholarly, academic literature to support your response.
Methodology Rationale The proposed research is based on a combination of qualitative and quantitative methods. Qualitative research involves iterative, logical and exploratory process that gathers the views of participants with the objective of analysing the facts that relate to the study. On the other hand quantitative methods comprise of deductive ways of studying the data collected (Bryman, 2004 cited in Heath and Tyna, 2010; pg 10).
Use methods that permit direct investigation of the question Research questions from the qualitative standpoint were answered through a data collection course from interview style of open ended questions. These answers were then interpreted and informed judgments were concluded. In distinction, the quantitative
