Abstract

The purpose of the chapter is to review the role of quantitative methods in corporate research and the methods for analysing quantitative data. The study used a secondary data on quantitative research methods and a survey of published articles on schools, businesses and non- profit organizations. The key findings show that exploratory data can be analyzed using graphs and charts and hypothesis testing can be employed to test statements made. Impacts of one variable on another and the relationships between variables can be explained using correlation and regression analysis. The implications are that the value of a quantitative analysis arises when it is possible to identify features that occur frequently across the many participatory discussions aimed at studying a particular research theme.
