    Hi so I'm doing a human geography project where the aim is to use qualative methods only to collect data.
    I'm doing a study of student mobilities on night outs and one thing i wass thinking of doing during participant observation would be to count numbers of students arriving from different directions to try and determine how they had traveled to this particular club. eg from bus station, taxi rank etc. What are people thoughts on this as qualitative data?

    Similarly do people think it would be okay to count the different amounts of boys and girls getting out of taxis? One of the key features of the project is differences between lads and lasses mobilities.

    Cheers

    That's quantative isn't it? Because it's the number of people coming from a certain direction..?
