The chapter ushers in the introductory aspect of the work.  Such specific issues as statement of the problem, purpose of the study, significance of the study and methodology are discussed.  The chapter concludes with the formulation of a working hypothesis and the definition of terms used.

The second chapter deals with a review of related literature.  This chapter proves to be quite exciting as the writer got exposed to numerous works abounding in this area.  Both local and foreign related literature are viewed.

The chapter three discusses in its great details the research methodology adopted.  It goes on to highlight such areas as sources of data, the survey instruments used and finally the statistical treatment and analysis of data collected.

The fourth chapter introduces what can be considered as the main substance of the work for data unless properly presented, analyzed and interpreted would remain meaningless.  This chapter precisely does that.
