Various types of banking risks will also be notified.

This chapter presents the research approach, research design, sampling method, sample size, types of data, sources of data, and how data will be analysed.

Design includes sampling, data types, variables, data sources, data collection techniques and mechanisms adopted for this research. Even though the study is conducted as a secondary data research, the researcher used quantitative methods where manifest approach to content analysis is employed.
