7. Analyse data

After collecting your data, it is time to start analysing it to find the answers to your research question. Data analysis is sometimes daunting and many researchers cringe at the thought of it. However, this should be viewed as an exciting time in which you are able to see all your hard work in action. It is now that you are able to see whether your hypotheses are supported and whether you have found new and interesting trends to report on.
