Expert Answer:

Analysis of data is the process of inspecting, cleaning, transforming, and modelling data with the goal of discovering useful information, suggesting conclusions, and supporting decision making.

The purpose of the data analysis and interpretation phase is to transform the data collected into credible evidence about the development of the intervention and its performance.

Analysis can help answer some key questions:

Has the program made a difference?

How big is this difference or change in knowledge, attitudes, or behavior?


This process usually includes the following steps:

Organizing the data for analysis (data preparation)

Describing the data

Interpreting the data (assessing the findings against the adopted evaluation criteria)


Analyzing information involves examining it in ways that reveal the relationships, patterns, trends, etc. that can be found within it. It means comparing your information to that from other groups, to help draw some conclusions from the data. The point, in terms of your evaluation, is to get an accurate assessment in order to better understand your work and its effects on those you’re concerned with, or in order to better understand the overall situation.
