Interpretation is essential for the simple reason that the usefulness and utility of research findings lei in proper interpretation. It is being considered a basiccomponent of research process of the following reason:
It is through interpretation that the researcher can well understand theabstract principle that beneath his findings.
Research can better appreciate only through interpretation why hisfindings are what they are and make others to understand the realsignificance of his research findings.
Interpretation leads to the establishment of explanatory concepts that canserve as a guide for future research studies.
