Descriptive research questions

Descriptive research questions simply aim to describe the variables being measured. When a word is used to describe, it is meant that these research questions aim to quantify the variables the researcher is interested in. Think of research questions that start with words such as "How much?", "How often?", "What percentage?", and "What proportion?", but also sometimes questions starting "What is?" and "What are?". Often, descriptive research questions focus on only one variable and one group, but they can include multiple variables and groups. Here are some examples below:

|Question:           |How many calories do American adolescent males consume per day?                                                                 |
|Variable:           |Daily calorific intake                                                                                                           |
|Group:             |American adolescent males                                                                                                       |

|Question:           |How many calories do American adolescent males and adolescent females consume per day?                                           |
