Hello Dr. McCoy and Class,
The particularity between quantitative and qualitative research are well-practiced. Quantitative answers more of the “what?” questions, whereas qualitative refers to more of the “why?” (Burnham, XXXXXXXXXXQuantitative research is defined as a systematic investigation of phenomena by gathering quantifiable data and performing statistical, mathematical, or computational techniques. Quantitative methods emphasize objective measurements and the statistical, mathematical, or numerical analysis of data collected through polls, questionnaires, and surveys, or by manipulating pre-existing statistical data using computational techniques.
Quantitative research collects information from existing and potential customers using sampling methods and sending out online surveys, online polls, and questionnaires, the results of which can be depicted in the form of numerical. After careful understanding of these numbers to predict the future of a product or service and make changes accordingly. Quantitative research is mostly conducted in the social sciences using the statistical methods used above to collect quantitative data from the research study. In this research method, researchers and statisticians deploy mathematical frameworks and theories that pertain to the quantity under question.
Primary research methods for quantitative study: Survey, cross-sectional and longitudinal surveys. Co
elational research; a comparison between two entities. Casual-comparative analysis; analyze how various variables or group change under specific influences. In research in the quantitative tradition, it is used when one tests hypotheses in group design and draws readings based on whether statistical significance allows rejection of the null hypothesis. Concerning intervention research (e.g., in psychology, medicine, education), it is epitomized by the randomized controlled trial, in which an intervention (e.g., psychotherapy, medication) is compared with another intervention or control condition. Mixed methods research is a methodology for conducting research that involves collecting, analyzing, and integrating quantitative (e.g., experiments, surveys) and qualitative (e.g., focus groups, interviews) research. (Kazdin, 2016; Lewis et al., 2019).
Because of the nature of my topic, battered women incarcerated and domestic violence, many studies are qualitative or mixed methodology studies, I was not successful in finding a variety of quantitative research. The more I researched, the more it became apparent this area of study is succeeded through more qualitative and mixed-methodology studies than quantitative studies.
Attached are my articles on the quantitative research of domestic violence and prolonged re-victimization.
The role of shame in chronic peer victimization. (Irwin, Craig, & Hollenstein, 2019).
This article describes the investigation into peer-victimization and the bully-victim relationship. This study consisted of four hundred and four adolescents ages ten to fourteen of diverse ethnicity. Percentages were collected, and analyses from the cu
ent study were utilized in predictors and covariate variables. This study examined and assessed the emotional experience, shame, and continuance of victimization in the span of one year. The instruments used are, but not limited to, surveys, past research, and questionnaires to gather data. To collect shame data, the experience of shame scale (ESS) was used, the test of self-conscious affect-adolescent (TOSCA-A) was used to measure guilt, externalization, detachment, and pride.
In conclusion, the percentage of emotion, mainly shame, resulted in playing a critical role in explaining why victimization occurs. Cu
ent study findings indicate the central importance of shame in this destructive relationship problem. Future studies aimed at uncovering the emotional mechanisms that underlie shame will contribute to effective prevention and intervention programs to alleviate the experience of shame in peer-victimized.

Understanding the links between violence against women and women’s participation in illegal activity, final report. (Richie, 2003).
This article presents the relationship between domestic violence and illegal activities. A presentation of quantitative findings are shown; however, the results are qualitative. The objectives of this study were to measure the scope of the domestic violence problem among the population of incarcerated women, to measure the violence experienced by this population including but not limited to the forms of abuse, and to assess the extent to which domestic violence relates to illegal activities. Methods used in this study are both quantitative and qualitative, including, but not limited to, a review of existing data from state agencies to establish the overall prevalence, surveys based on questions found on the Conflict Tactics Scale, and in-depth interviews. The findings were analyzed using SPSS and presented a percentage, to wit, an ANOVA was performed on two questions to determine 1) if there was a co
elation between domestic violence and crime, and 2) if the abuse through their lifetime was believed to be a factor in their illegal involvement. The quantitative findings recorded the number of calls received in a matter of two years and the total amount of women a
ested and the percentage based on ethnicity. Percentages of acknowledgment if the abuse was a factor for their illegal activity was presented in the quantitative findings. Cu
ent study findings report a co
elation between violence and illegal activities; future studies aim to uncover the impact of abuse and how neglecting services such as therapy or counseling affected their right and wrong decision-making.

Violence Against Women in Selected Areas of the United States (Montgomery et al., 2019).
As violence against women continues to increase, evidence continues to demonstrate the co
elation between violence and abuse, illegal activities, and HIV. This study used baseline data from the HPTN 064, a seroincidence study for their analysis. Measurements were based on surveys and self-reporting transfe
ed into usable statistical data. The demographic profile was calculated from a sample of two thousand ninety-nine women of diverse ethnicity and socioeconomic background ranging from eighteen to forty-four years of age. Based on the data, the quantitative results showed associations between abuse, depressive symptoms, and illegal activity and acquiring HIV. Although research has shown that experiencing abuse impairs a woman’s ability to successfully make decisions, engage in healthy relationships, and remain in low self-esteem and lack of self-confidence. This study conducted bivariate analyses between covariates and each type of violence using logistic regression. For each of the four violent experiences (i.e., emotional abuse, physical violence, sexual violence, and experiencing more than 1 form of violence or abuse), bivariate relationships for which P < .1 were included in multivariable logistic regression analyses. In multivariable analyses, associations with P < .05 were considered statistically significant. Pairwise odds ratios with 95% confidence intervals (CIs) were calculated to examine the association between types of violence. All analyses were performed using SAS version 9.2 (SAS Institute, Cary, NC). The findings showed participants would benefit and need trauma-informed prevention and intervention.
Learned from these articles are the co
elation is evident in domestic violence and illegal activities. What I found most interesting is the lack of quantitative research; however, this base of research was conducted with quantitative and qualitative methods as well as a mixed-method approach to gather the data and provide its findings accurately.

The first article selected is titled “The variables associated with health promotion behaviors among u
an black women” The article is quantitative because the researchers speak about variables impacting health promotion behaviors among u
an Black women. The study used a cross-sectional survey that used measurements to get results. Quantitative research uses data and the article used data for measuring (Rutberg,2018). The article is important to my topic of interest because the article addresses how different variables impact a black woman’s awareness of healthy behaviors compared to other women of different races.
The researcher addresses how no other studies have identified the comprehensive impact of readiness for change, health literacy, and self-efficacy on promoting healthy behaviors and health disparities have remained unchanged over the past two decades despite multiple interventions (Hepburn, XXXXXXXXXXQuantitative research produces results and the article showed measurements that produced results. The article is helpful because it helps researchers focused the health disparities among at-risk populations such as Black women regarding readiness for change in health promotion activities (Hepburn, 2018)

The second article selected is titled “Racial Disparities in Diabetes Mortality in the 50 Most Populous US Cities” The article focuses on the disparities seen in Blacks who have higher diabetes complication and death rates than non-Hispanic (Rosenstock,2014). The article is a quantitative study because it compares the mortality rate among the black and white race by calculating data and producing a result. The article uses statistics which a form of quantitative research that turns quantitative data into useful information to help with decision making. The article is helpful in showing disparities in every aspect of human services.

The third article is titled “Promoting continuity of care for homeless adults with unmet health needs: The role of
ief interventions” The article is considered quantitative research because the article uses data and analysis to focus on the ba
ier with the continuation of care for homeless individuals. The article kept refe
ing to other studies done in the past that showed that the article was quantitative. Quantitative Research gets used to test a theory and ultimately support or reject the theory. The article used a graph chart that specified quantitative measurements. The method used in the article was a mixed-method and a realist stance, which is useful for linking quantitative measures of programmed effectiveness

There is significant difference between Qualitative and Quantitative research and specific requirement demands the study to be either former or latter. Specifically, quantitative research provides answers to the "What" questions while on the other hand qualitative answers more to the "Why" questions.
I am working on a very sensitive topic where it is difficult and practically futile to use quantitative research. Premise of the subject is to engross the experience of battered women incarcerated and girls or women who faces domestic violence. Essentially, each women will have different experience, different trigger points and we cannot generalize it by taking a standard survey and extrapolating it on the graph. Indeed, for this subject, specifically qualitative research is more fruitful and applicable. It helps me to comprehend the difference causes that lead to women suffering in their homes, what are underlying reasons, opinions and motivations. By the virtue of qualitative research, I am able to derive insights to the problem that can help to develop concrete ideas as well as hypotheses on which we can utilize the quantitative research. Application of qualitative research also enables me to discern trends in opinions, thought process that enables me to deep dive into the problem at hand.
