What Is Research Data Analysis?

Research data analysis is the process of applying logical or statistical methods to understand, summarize, illustrate and assess data gathered from research.

How to Analyze Research Data?

  • Set measurable, realistic and attainable goals prior to starting your research process. Base the questions you ask during the research on these goals.
  • Understand the type of data you want to gather to find answers to the questions you set earlier. Then decide on the criteria you should use to measure that data.
  • Now that you know what you want to gather and how you are going to measure it, start collecting the data in a systematic way. You can use research methods such as surveys, focus groups, interviews etc. to gather data.
  • Once you have gathered the data from your research, check it for accuracy. You can create a database in Creately to store your data.
  • Next step is data scrubbing, where you will be removing wrong, duplicate or incomplete data. Also check for the authority of data sources and measure the quality of data.
  • Based on the type of data you have, select a data analysis method. For example, if it includes numbers you can use pie charts or bar charts, or if your data is on your customer’s view on competitor products, you can use perceptual maps to visualize it.
  • Select a relevant template from Creately to start visualizing your data. Or enable the relevant shape library to quickly create the chart or diagram you want to represent your data with.
  • Invite your teammates to collaborate on the visuals via Creately real-time collaboration features.
  • Once the data has been analyzed, it’s time to interpret it. See how the analyzed data can help you answer the questions you wanted answers to.
