Furthermore just like the unstructured interview it also re quires experienced researcher who are quite familiar with the issues that are being handled and also how do deal with them when conducting the interview in depth. The last type of interview is face to face interview. This is the kind of interview that is linked with the most advantages. The main advantage of this kind of interview is that it deals with face to face the interviewer and other person who is being interviewed (DANTZKER, M. L., amp. HUNTER, R.127) When data is being collected some of it may be recorded in numerical form like in the case of age. For proper analysis this data is latter recorded to fit into their specific groups in such cases when the data has been gathered the person compiling the data may however prefer to use a more simpler method of analysis such as the cross tabulations so as to examine the relationship(DANTZKER, M. L., amp. HUNTER, R. 145). Once the collection of data is accomplished there are other two phases that are seen through so as to complete the research. However the data that is obtained is always in raw manner the data must be coded for entry in the statistical software or program. Once it is the program cleaning has to be conducted so as to assure accuracy of the data for subsequent statistical analysis. However it is in this stage that missing data are dealt with and also recoding is required. The other kind of analysis that is conducted is known as univariate analysis. This kind of analysis is always conducted to gain knowledge about the data before bivariate or multivaliate analysis. Descriptive information’s are however used afterwards. This may involve the use of frequency distributional tables. Where the researcher examines the…

When data is being collected some of it may be recorded in numerical form like in the case of age. For proper analysis this data is later recorded to fit into their specific groups in such cases when the data has been gathered the person compiling the data may, however, prefer to use a simpler method of analysis such as the cross tabulations so as to examine the relationship(DANTZKER, M.

Once the collection of data is accomplished there are other two phases that are seen through so as to complete the research. However, the data that is obtained is always in a raw manner the data must be coded for entry in the statistical software or program. Once it is the program cleaning has to be conducted so as to assure the accuracy of the data for subsequent statistical analysis. However, it is at this stage that missing data are dealt with and also recording is required. The other kind of analysis that is conducted is known as univariate analysis. This kind of analysis is always conducted to gain knowledge about the data before bivariate or multivariate analysis. Descriptive information’s are however used afterwards. This may involve the use of frequency distributional tables. Where the researcher examines the data by the use of central tendency the data is further assessed by reviewing the shape of the data through its distribution.
