Qualitative methods

Qualitative methods refers to research methods which are concerned more with the quality and richness of the data being collected than the control of the research situation, the quantity of data or the sophistication of the statistical analysis of them available to the researcher. Participant observation and open-ended interviews that do not use a detailed questionnaire are the most common examples in psychological research.
