    If we were going to conduct a similar study, then ideally we would increase our number of movies watched, thus increasing our sample size and limiting the potential of our results being due to chance. Additionally, in future studies, researchers could break away from Disney movies and begin to analyze other forms of media outlets such as DreamWorks, Nickelodeon, and Pixar. Then researchers can evaluate whether similar gender stereotypes are present in other media outlets as has been found in…

    First, the sample size is small. 25 interviews do not give us a wide picture of why consumers may use social media. This is especially if the sample was a group of individuals living in the same area, having similar ethnic/racial background or proximate socio-economic status. We know that peoples’ consumptions’ preferences vary widely. Therefore, a bigger sample is required for this type of research. Second, the method of data analysis suffers from conceptual stretching. While implicit in the…

Although, this research project did not analyse the data collected from the questionnaires, it can be argued that the small sample size (one student teacher) has significant limitations on the results. A…

    method is a weak sampling technique; however, it is one of the most commonly used sampling techniques in ethnographic research. The participants were also recruited using the snowballing sampling method. I think that using two sampling techniques helped the authors recruit an appropriate number of participants. The sample of 25 participants is good, with data striation very likely to have been accomplished with a sample of this size. Offeredy and Vickers noted that larger samples might be heavy,…
