Q: How to formulate a clear statement of research problem?

1 Answer to this question
Answer:

A statement of a problem is a brief, clear, and precise explanation of an issue that the researcher wants to study. It includes a vision, issue statement, and proposed method to solve the problem. The 5 'W's - Who, What, Where, When and Why - can be used to define a problem statement. I understand that you want to study the factor facilitating measles outbreak in a particular district.
