What is a case study?

Case study is a tool, research methodology or a method of analysis. It is a way to gather extensive knowledge and information about a person, a group of people, a problem, or a phenomenon to find results that will prove useful in figuring out future trends and eliminating existing mistakes.

The aim of a case study shouldn’t be simply finding information but understanding the issue and proposing different strategies to eradicate the problem from society.

Case studies are mostly used in the fields of business sciences, social sciences and life sciences.
