      Social research is based on logic and empirical observations. Charles C. Ragin writes in his Constructing Social Research book that "Social research involved the interaction between ideas and evidence. Ideas help social researchers make sense of evidence, and researchers use evidence to extend, revise and test ideas.". research has a great potential for developing new ideas and methods to improve family planning programs. Social science does not have a single unified and clear-cut message. In the period since World War II social scientists have frequently differed about important issues at the interface between social science and population policy.

Before beginning your paper, you need to decide how you plan to design the study.

WHAT IS RESEARCH DESIGN A research design is a set of logical procedures that (when followed) enables one to obtain evidence to determine the degree to which a theoretical hypothesis (or set of hypotheses) is/are correct.
