Descriptive Research

A descriptive study is undertaken in order to ascertain and be able to describe the characteristics of the percentage of members who are in their senior and junior years, sex composition, age groupings, number of semesters until action, and number of business courses taken, can only be considered as descriptive in nature. Quite frequently, descriptive studies are undertaken in organizations in order to learn about and describe the characteristics of a group of employees, as for example, the age, educational level, job status, and length of service of Hispanics or Asians working in the system. Descriptive studies are also undertaken to understand the characteristics of organizations that follow certain common practices.
