Find articles to support your argument in both situations. Is the article based on quantitative research? Explain.
how does data become usable information? How can it be misused?
Tutors, please sign in to answer this question.
Qualitative research data becomes a usable information when it has been gathered under proper experimental conditions and appropriate control and points to a new qualitative aspect of a particular research topic. This kind of research developed in social and behavioral sciences. When someone tries to use inappropriately collected qualitative research data to draw a conclusion or to alter an experimentally supported hypothesis then it is misuse of data. Below I am listing some journals on qualitative research that you may look through to find exact articles supporting proper use of data and its misuse.
Hope this helps.
