Step 5: Do Your Analysis

Time for the Analysis!

Analyzing your data can be fun as you finally start to look at the information that you've gathered. You will most likely want to start with some descriptive statistics - which believe it or not are relatively easy to create. NEDARC has developed a section under "Statistical Help" called "Basic Statistics" to help you get started.

You should also consult with a statistician about your analysis plan and the type of statistics you will need to generate for your project. Remember... your statistician/analyst is most likely an expert at data handling, and will be able to help with implementing the correct analysis for your data, as well as interpreting the results.


Congratulations!  Ready for the next step?
