The difference between Qualitative data and quantitative data is that quantitative data is used to describe precisely or the exact data on a sample to produce information. A quantitative sample can be shown by saying that today’s temperature is 38o C, and this will be more precise than saying that today’s temperature is “very hot.” Qualitative data are used to describe data in general form when describing something like beauty, hot, cold, and many more without indicating the actual value of the data. Quantitative can be measured with equipment to produce integer values or real values to be used in giving information (Schwartz, 2006). Qualitative data cannot be measured with machines as the data are got by just analyzing the data given or by using our eyes to give information about your feelings.
