In most respects, they are essentially the same, and the choice of which set to use is usually based on a researcher’s habit of convenience. Type: E 17. Describe the three methods a researcher can use to find a statute. a. A researcher can use the descriptive word approach (using an index to look up words and phrases that describe a research problem; a researcher can use the title or topic approach and simply retrieve the appropriate title of a statutory set (because the researcher is quite familiar with the way the statutes are organized); or a researcher can use the popular name approach to find a federal statute when a statute is known by a popular or common name.
