Definitions for "Observational Research"
research based on the observation of subjects in laboratory or natural settings rather than on experimentation or interviews.
The systematic study of behaviour as it occurs in the natural environment.
May be used in the laboratory but it is primarily conducted in a natural setting to study the relationship between a specific factor and some aspect of health or illness. For this reason, observational research may suggest an association but does not determine cause and effect.
