Research Method and Design Appropriateness
Elaborate on the differences among various research methodologies. What are the

This maybe at a local level, state level, national level, or even at the global level. You determine the study population by how big you want the scope of your project to be.

Sampling Frame

This section requires one paragraph in length.
Data Collection

Likewise, conducting a numerical poll would be quantitative. If you conduct personal interviews, you will want to ensure minimal researcher bias.
