Detailed Question -

I need an example research article that uses a descriptive cross-section research design.

1 Answer to this question

A descriptive cross-sectional study inspects the prevalence of a disease or condition in a defined population at a specific point or period in time without attempting to draw any inferences or offer any causes for the prevalence. Such a study is conducted for several reasons, such as for resource allocation or identifying areas for further study or conveying informal information about the disease or condition.

You may search for a sample article in resources such as Google Scholar or Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ). From the search results, you may go through and download a few that are close to your study in design. We identified an open access article (through Google Scholar) that we thought might be relevant for you. You may refer to it here.
