Limitations Of Descriptive Research

• It is not applicable to problems which cannot satisfy the required criteria mentioned earlier.

• The researcher may make description an end itself. Research must lead to discovery of facts.

• Although social science problems are continuous and have a past and a future, the researcher may loose him in current conditions only.

• The researcher may tend to overuse statistics. So in making statistical analysis, its limitations should be recognized.

In short descriptive research deals with everything that can be counted and studied. But there are always restrictions to that. Your research must have an impact to the lives of the people around you. For example, finding the most frequent disease that affects the children of a town. The reader of the research will know what to do to prevent that disease thus; more people will live a healthy life.
