The objective and key research questions of the study are essential in determining the appropriate study design. Review and synthesis of the literature associated with the key research questions also help in finalizing the study designs.

Sample size estimation is governed by the study objectives, key research questions, and the study design. Depending upon the nature of the study, one can choose between qualitative or quantitative sampling.

Several factors determine the quality of data. It starts with recruiting the right investigators for the survey, training them well, conducting regular assessments as well as refresher training sessions if required.
