conducted to detect weaknesses in design and instrumentation and to provide proxy data for selection of a probability sample
blueprint for fulfilling objectives and answering questions
Stage 4: Data Collection and Preparation
sought for their proximity to the truth and control over error
have had at least one level of interpretation inserted between the event and its recording
Stage 5: Data Analysis and Interpretation
Data analysis usually involves
looking for patterns
reducing accumulated data to a manageable size
applying statistical techniques
Interpret these findings in light of the client’s research question or determine if the results are consistent with their hypotheses and theories.
