Hello, I so much love this explanation about conceptual framework..Thanks for sharing. Alright here is my question. I’m writing on Effect Of External Debt on Economic Growth in my Country. Having gone through some journal I discovered that variables used in measuring External Debt are: inflation, external debt, Exchange rate and many more while variable used in measuring Economic growth is GDP. Can we then say my dependent variable is GDP or Economic growth and independent variable(s) is inflation, exchange rate or EXTERNAL DEBT itself? Pls what’s my conceptual framework? Thanks for your reply in advance.
