Field data collection
PRLog - Jan. 16, 2014 - CHENNAI, India -- As the title suggests, it involves collecting data from the field which is primary in nature. Collecting the data in this mode is very challenging as it requires interaction with a lot of stake holders and their perception in context of research matters a lot. The challenges are difficulty in:

Engaging the participants
Keeping the motivation high

So, these are the baby steps in reflecting to know what is happening or what exactly they are expecting. But the field survey will enable the researcher to identify the area of concern including the various feasible options to solve. While collecting data from the field, you can’t go to anybody and ask questions relevant to your research. You must analyze the respondents from a targeted population to get the reliable answers. Therefore, you must exhibit ethical traits and considerations such as:

Protecting the dignity and welfare of the respondents
Respect for those who decline to participate
Invasion of privacy

Hence, the pros and cons of respondents must be taken in account in sampling. When sampling, you must analyze the field of survey (http://www.phdassistance.com/phd-doctorate-Field-collecti...); whether it is educational institutes, shopping malls, community areas, or anything related to it. Once the sampling is done, you must focus on the tools of collecting data. Those are questionnaire and electronics equipments like audio-visual materials. Questionnaire is no doubt in printed; you could disburse among the respondents for their reply. Otherwise, you could highlight their view points. That is why the modern gadgets and appliances are the perfect source in this regard. Randomly questioning will not induce accurate result; hence the questions put forward to them must be in logical order. At no point of time, the respondents should not feel embarrassment. The way you are collecting data is more important, because at the end of day you have to analyze.

Collecting data from the field is no doubt a herculean task but time consuming. One can’t rule out the issues and obstacles but it requires strategic planning to deal with.

Focus is collecting valid data to make a solid inference. Therefore, framing the questionnaire is obviously a tool; you must be well versed to design it.
