A researcher for a major financial institution in Canada is interested in studying the“expectations regarding the sharing of financial and practical responsibilities amongmarried and cohabiting couples in which both partners are between the ages of 20 and 29.” The financial institution is considering introducing an education program for that population segment that will ultimately encourage them to purchase their financial products. However, the company wants to know more about the population of interest and whether having such a program would influence a customer’s decision to choose their products.
Conducting a keyword search on “couples,” “financial,” “banking,” and “responsibility,” the researcher has generated a lengthy list of research articles. However, the researcher feels that the two articles (below) are the most relevant. In looking at all of the literature, it turns out that not much is known about the research topic, especially as it relates to the design of education programs for the particular age group.
The researcher has considered a number of different methods for carrying out the research, but has narrowed it down to three options: focus groups, interviews, and questionnaires.
