Quantitative research is the foundation for evidence-based global health practice and interventions. Preparing health research starts with a clear research question to initiate the study, careful planning using sound methodology as well as the development and management of the capacity and resources to complete the whole research cycle. Good planning will also ensure valid research outcomes. Quantitative research emphasizes a clear target population, proper sampling techniques, adequate sample size, detailed planning for data collection, and proper statistical analysis. This chapter provides an overview of quantitative research methods, explains relevant study designs, and presents considerations on all aspect of the research cycle along four phases: initiation, planning, data collection, and reporting phase.
