Demographic Data & Statistics

There are a few ways to limit your results to just qualitative or Quantitative Research studies.

  1. Use Keywords. Add the keyword quantitative/qualitative and research or study. For example:
    reading AND (research or study) AND quantitative
    Sample search in database. Top box has "reading", middle box has research or study, and bottom box has quantitative
  2. Use Filters. Some databases, like ERIC, will have the Publication type filter Reports -Research. Be sure to add quantitative/qualitative to your search.
