In the modern civilized world that we live in, data collection or the phrase “This app is collecting your Data” comes much often. So, what exactly has changed? Ever wondered How, and more importantly Why the same social media apps, shopping apps, and even gaming apps are capturing your data suddenly? The answer lies in the way in which the so called apps use the data. Unrelated, irrelevant facts become information when processed accurately. With all the collected data, it builds our profile based on that user data. This processed information is then used to deliver you several ads related to products and services of your interest.

What are the Data Collection Techniques?

The purpose of data collection determines the technique. Data collection methodologies can be broadly classified into two categories-

    • Primary Data Collection Technique: Primary data collection focuses on first-hand data collection that is relevant for the needed research. This technique does not use past data and utilizes several methods for data collection such as Surveys, Forms, Questionnaires, Observations, Interviews, etc.
      • Quantitative data collection techniques are for the market research using various statistical tools. In this demand or other factors are foreseen over the set of historical data. Techniques such as Time Series Analysis, Smoothing Techniques and Barometric Method are examples of quantitative data collection methods.
      • Qualitative data collection techniques comes into play when the historical data is not available or when the statistical data is not required, when there’s a need for non-quantifiable data such as emotions, judgments, experience, etc. Surveys, polls, interviews, focus groups, the Delphi technique and questionnaires are some techniques used.
    • Secondary Data Collection Technique: Secondary data refers to data that is historical or from the past and is being used. This data can be from both internal sources of the organization such as the Organization’s health records, Financial Records, CRM software, and Sales Reports or external sources such as Press Releases, Business Journals, and Third-Party Organizations, Govt. reports, etc.
