Data analysis tips for researchers

The basics of data analysis

To assist researchers, we have put together resource sheets that provide information on common research topics such as grant writing, preparing manuscripts, and data analysis.

For researchers, statistics are a key aspect in analysing, interpreting, and presenting research findings. For clinicians, understanding statistics enhances the ability to interpret research studies for their relevance and significance in practice. Whether you are a clinician or researcher, statistics can play an essential role in evidenced-based practice/research and as such, it’s important to understand the variety of analytic techniques available and when they may be used. The research resource sheets below step through data analysis basics, discussing a range of categories from variables and statistical error to commonly used statistical tests.
