Data analysis

Data analysis searches for trends, patterns, and relationships among collected data. It is a way to summarize the data to answer questions. The statistical tool or method used to perform the analysis depends on the questions being asked. For example, certain statistical tools can be used to describe the frequency and patterns of certain symptoms in a patient population, whereas a different statistical tool might evalutate the association between a treatment and changes in symptom severity or progression.
