    This entry also raises the question about whether or not the additional descriptors are necessary. They certainly add clarity, but in this one there seems to be a little blending with the first outcome.

    I believe that the outcomes are strong (because the are clear and concise); in other words, they can (in my view) stand alone.

    I wouldn’t suggest adding “quantitatively-informed” without a balance of qualitatively-informed. Perhaps something about diverse methodological perspectives and approaches?

    This outcome might be written as ‘quantitatively informed opinion’.
