The purpose of employing this method was to describe the nature of a situation, as it exists at the time of the study and to explore the cause or causes of a particular condition. The researcher opted to use this kind of research considering the desire to obtain first hand data from the respondents so as to formulate rational and sound conclusions and recommendations for the study. Since this study was focused on the relation between gross domestic product and unemployment rate, the descriptive method is the most appropriate method to use.

More specifically, this study will make use of correlation studies as a research method. This method is designed to determine the extent to which different variables are related to each other in the population of interest. This method will facilitate the assessment of how much variation is caused by factors that devaluates currency of Pakistan. This method will also help the researcher test the hypotheses stated in the study. The correlation method is advantageous as it does not require a large sample. This is because it is assumed that if a relationship exists, it will be evident in a sample of modest size. However, the provided sample should represent the population being investigated. Moreover, the instrument to be used should also be reliable and valid. Thus, correlation study is highly dependent on the skills of the researcher in selecting and developing research instruments.
