The research variables that will be compared and contrasted will be observations and sampling. From a multicultural research perspective the observations that are made by the researchers must take into account the cultural perspectives of the individuals that the research is being conducted on, which means that it is essential that the observations are not tailored towards the perspectives and or biases that may be held by the researcher. This makes observations and multicultural research difficult to record accurately and reliably, due to the human tendency of the researcher to utilize self-imposed biases and or perceptions of the subjects of the in the recording of their research observations and or findings. The observations that are made utilizing multicultural research methodologies are also comprise from the quantitative information that is obtained from individuals within communities that usually differ from that of the researcher, which makes it vitally important that the quantitative data that is ascertained is analyzed a detached scientific manner with as little bias and or subjectivity as possible. The observations that are made during multicultural research are not ...
