    I have learned that Qualitative research seeks more in-depth, free form answers from respondents either in person or via open-test responses and that, this type of research is usually carried out with small groups and takes the form of in-person focus groups, telephone interviews or detailed surveys with free text responses. The method is used to gather anecdotal views and opinions, which inform generally rather than offer hard data.
