CHAPTER 3 - RESEARCH METHODOLOGY

RESEARCH DESIGN

This research entitled “A Survey On The Monthly Income Of The Residents Of Brgy. 788” uses a “quasi-experimental” research design in which the surveys given were assigned to the residents of the said barangay in a certain wave of measurement. Along with the quasi-experimental design, the research also uses a “regression-discontinuity design” in where the respondents are classified among the monthly income they receive, how many family members they have and if they either think their income is enough for their needs or not.

In general, this baby thesis used a quasi-experimental design, which means that the survey given was assigned only to selected working residents of Brgy. 788.

The design used is accurate enough for the purpose of this study since it controls the balance between choosing a certain community, but also randomizing the respondents.
