The Two Faces of Market Data Collection

Qualitative vs. Quantitative Market Data Collection

You generally need both qualitative and quantitative market data for a well-executed project.

As the above graphic illustrates, qualitative data includes interviews, exploratory groups, and observations. However, this data is subjective. By just using qualitative data, you risk generalizing results. Quantitative data, by contrast, is testable and validated. It includes surveys and big data analysis. By combining qualitative and quantitative data, you gain human factor insights by bridging traditional market data information sources.
