WHEN DO I NEED A STATISTICIAN?
DURING DATA COLLECTION
Data collection is time and money consuming and a researcher’s worst nightmare is to collect unusable data.
Quality data can provide reliable information if collected properly. To be understood and analysed, data must be cleaned and organized according to the purposes of the study.
Results are useful only if they are presented in a clear and meaningful format. Statisticians create reports, tables, and graphs making results accessible to other researchers and the general public.
Without statistics we cannot know if the results obtained are valid and reliable. Accurate definition of methodology and adequate data analysis give strength and reliability to the research.
