Problem Statement

Problem Statement is a crucial section of your research project. Pay attention to the principal specifications of this part of your research listed below:

  • The Problem means a perplexing question.
  • This is a sentence that states your goal and the main idea of your research.
  • The problem should be clearly stated. Each word of the statement should be expressive, sharp, indispensable, and definite.
  • The economy of words is absolutely indispensable, i.e. the shorter, the better.
  • It established the goal for the research effort.
  • It indicates what the researcher will and will not include in the research endeavor.
  • It is a clear description of the issue, including a vision, issue statement and method to solve the issue.
  • It outlines the basic facts of the problem.
  • It explains why the problem matters.
  • It pinpoints a solution to the problem as quickly and directly as possible.
  • You should conclude by summarizing the problem and solution.
  • Do not use any jargon or technical term without defining it.
  • Include a Thesis Statement as well. A thesis statement is a single sentence that summarizes your entire argument, boiling it down to its bare essentials. A good thesis statement identifies both the problem and the solution as succinctly and clearly as possible.
