It probes deep into the factors of interest. The approach  is used when  a  survey with a  large sample or an experiment is  inappropriate, inadequate, or both. 

Case studies can also be made of  individuals from certain recognized groups-  drug addicts, alcoholics, delinquents, professionals, and subjects belonging to particular ethnic groups, on institutes such as schools, factories, hospitals. It may use past history, description of present events;  it could use combination of various methods such as verbal description, observation, measurements, records, and artifacts.
