Analysing the results of a research project

Once results have been collected, researchers need to analyse the data so they can see what the results mean and what effect they might have. If you have certain qualifications, you could examine the data, do statistical work, examine patterns or write up the results and conclusions. It’s quite unusual to get involved at this stage, and you’ll need to meet certain criteria beforehand, for example you’ll probably need to be qualified to a certain level in maths.
