SQL is useful for researchers who collect data on a vast scale. Longitudinal research data can get tough to handle in large amounts. Because SQL files are effortless to use and because they retrieve a large number of data in less time, researchers use them in surveys that collect vast amounts of data.
Researchers use SQL to transfer information to other databases that support SQL. Researchers find it handy because it demands minimal coding. The SQL file comprises the following:
A CSV File of all the Responses - IP Address, Timestamp, etc.
A CSV File of all the Mappings (QuestionID, AnswerID)
A CSV File of all Question Metadata (QuestionID, QuestionType etc.)
Here are the advantages of SQL data:
Fast: Researchers can retrieve a large amount of data from databases efficiently and quickly.
Less coding required: It is easier to manage database systems due to less coding required.
Standardized language: SQL is widely used and well established, thus provides a stable platform worldwide.
Multiple data views: Researchers can view the data in numerous forms, which boosts their research.
