The research assumed a descriptive correlational study design which involved both qualitative and quantitative approaches. Using this method, the researcher used a structured questionnaire (close ended) and an interview guide (for qualitative responses).

In selecting the respondents the researcher used stratified random sampling, systematic random sampling together with purposive sampling techniques.
