For my data research, I chose to do a qualitative survey to understand the minds of teens and their attitudes towards the Death with Dignity Act. “Qualitative research is a broad approach to the study of social phenomena. Its various genres are naturalistic, interpretive, and increasingly critical, and they typically draw on multiple methods of inquiry” (Marshall 3). The ideas of teens and their opinions cannot be fully be understand in a series of numbers, or in percentages. “Qualitative research typically is enacted in naturalistic settings, draws on multiple methods that respect the humanity of the participants in the study, focuses on context, is emergent and evolving, and is fundamentally interpretive” (Marshall 2). In my survey, I ask teens to speak their opinions. Using a qualitative methodology is the better choice when compared to quantitative because better research can be conducted and better conclusions can be drawn if the participants fully express their opinions.
