Anyone have a definitive answer? I need logical rationale.
I suppose I could look it up in a text book as on-line help is not readily available...
But do you happen to know the difference between qualitative and non-quantitative? Is it merely syntactics? Does the government choose to use "Non-quantitative" instead of qualitative like they use public affairs instead of the outlawed "public relations/information"?
Arghhhh. I understand that non-quantitative data includes videos or transcripts coded into numbers making it quantifiable on a more objective level. Which I guess would make sense. Especially since government officials seem to be lacking qualitative measure ;p
I understand the difference between qualitative and quantitative. I think I understand the difference between quantitative and non-quantitative data. But does qualitative research coded as a quantitative measure, making it thus non-quantitative (but not necessarily qualitative) make sense? Is this an ad hoc fallacy?
I’m a crappy instructor if I can’t figure this out by tomorrow. Hopefully I’m just tired!
Feel free to send the answer to my work addy, or call, if you figure it out after 7 a.m.
