Step 8

Analysing your data

The advantage of using a programme like Epi-Info, SPSS or STATA for data capture, is that you can directly analyse your data in that particular package. Epi-Info tends to be the easiest for newcomers. Please note that you will have to do your data analysis yourself, and not hand over to a biostatistician to do the work. You can obviously get advice from the latter. You will work systematically with your supervisor to do the analysis. We encourage you to present your analyses as you progress with your work to the Departmental meetings. You will receive critical review and guidance through this process.
