The quantitative approach is especially useful for addressing specific questions about relatively well-defined phenomena. Quantitative analysis requires high-quality data in which variables are measured well (meaning the values of the variables must accurately represent differences in the characteristics of interest) this can be challenging when conducting research on complicated or understudied areas that do not lend themselves well to being measured with specific variables. Because it uses deductive logic and is therefore more easily viewed as “real science,” the quantitative approach is often perceived as providing stronger empirical evidence than other research approaches.
