Empirical evidence for a proposition is evidence, i.e. what supports or counters this proposition, that is constituted by or accessible to sense experience or experimental procedure. Empirical evidence is of central importance to the sciences and plays a role in various other fields, like epistemology and law.
thanks me later
A researcher starts with a theory, forms a hypothesis, makes observations, and then analyzes the data to confirm, reject, or refine the original theory.
Deductive approach to research involves developing a hypothesis and eventually carrying out a research to test the hypothesis in order to prove or disprove an already existing theory. On the contrary, inductive approach in research is aimed at developing a new theory from data collected from a research.
