ANALYSIS and INTERPRETATION provide answers
to the research questions postulated in the study.
ANALYSIS means the ordering, manipulating, and
summarizing of data to obtain answers to research questions.
Its purpose is to reduce data to intelligible and interpretable
form so that the relations of research problems can be studied
and tested.
INTERPRETATION gives the results of analysis, makes
inferences pertinent to the research relations studied, and draws
conclusions about these relations.
STATISTICS is simply a tool in research. In fact, according to
Leedy (1974:21), statistics is a language which, through its own
special symbols and grammar, takes the numerical facts of life and
translates them meaningfully.
Statistics thus gathers numerical data. The variations of the data
gathered are abstracted based on group characteristics and
combined to serve the purpose of description, analysis,
interpretation, and possible generalization. According to
McGuigan (1987), in research, this is known as the process of
concatenation where the statements are “chained together” with
other statements.
There are two kinds of statistics:
 DESCRIPTIVE STATISTICS – allows the
researcher to describe the population or sample used in
the study.
 INFERENTIAL STATISTICS – draws inferences
from sample data and actually deals with answering the
research questions postulated which are, in some cases,
cause and effect relationship.
DESCRIPTIVE STATISTICS
 describes the characteristics of the population or the sample. To
make them meaningful, they are grouped according to the
following measures:
 Measures of Central Tendency or Averages
 Measures of Dispersion or Variability
 Measures of Noncentral Location
 Measures of Symmetry and/or Asymmetry
 Measures of Peakedness or Flatness
Measures of Central Tendency or Averages.
These include the mean, mode and the median. The mean
is a measure obtained by adding all the values in a
population or sample and dividing by the number of
values that are added (Daniel, 1991:19-20). The mode is
simply the most frequent score of scores (Blalock,
1972:72). The median is the value above and below
which one half of the observations fall (Norusis, (1984:B-
63)
Measures of Dispersion or Variability.
These include the variance, standard
deviation, and the range. According to
Daniel (1991:24), a measure of dispersion
conveys information regarding the amount
of variability present in a set of idea.
The VARIANCE is a measure of the dispersion of the set of scores.
It tells us how much the scores are spread out. Thus, the variance is a
measure of the spread of the scores; it describes the extent to which
the scores differ from each other about their mean.
STANDARD DEVIATION thus refers to the deviation of scores
from the mean. Where ordinal measures of 1-5 scales (low-high)
are used, data most likely have standard deviations of less than
one unless, the responses are extremes (i.e., all ones and all
fives).
The RANGE is defined as the difference between the highest and
lowest scores (Blalock, 1972:77)
Measures of Noncentral Location. These include
the quantiles (i.e., percentiles, deciles, quartiles). The word
percent means “per hundred”. Therefore, in using
percentages, size is standardized by calculating the number of
individuals who would be in a given category if the total
number of cases were 100 and if the proportion in each
category remains unchanged. Since proportions must add to
unity, it is obvious that percentages will sum up to 100 unless
the categories are not mutually exclusive or exhaustive
(Blalock, 1972:33)
Measures of Symmetry and/or Asymmetry.
These include the skewness of the frequency distribution. If a
distribution is asymmetrical and the larger frequencies tend to
be concentrated toward the low end of the variable and the
smaller frequencies toward the high end, it is said to be
positively skewed. If the opposite holds, the larger frequencies
being concentrated toward the high end of the variable and the
smaller frequencies toward the low end, the distribution is
said to be negatively skewed (Ferguson and Takane, 1989:30).
Measures of Peakedness or Flatness of one
distribution in relation to another is referred to as Kurtosis. If
one distribution is more peaked than another, it may be
spoken of as more leptokurtic. If it is less peaked, it is said to
be more platykurtic.
NONPARAMETRIC TESTS
Two types of data are recognized in the application of statistical
treatments, these are: parametric data and nonparametric data.
Parametric data are measured data and parametric statistical tests
assume that the data are normally, or nearly normally, distributed
(Best and Kahn, 1998:338).
Nonparametric data are distribution free samples which implies
that they are free, of independent of the population distribution
(Ferguson and Takane, 1989:431).
The tests on these data do not rest on the more stringent assumption
of normally distributed population (Best and Kahn, 1998:338).
 Kolmogorov – Smirnov test - fulfills the function of
chi-square in testing goodness of fit and of the Wilcoxon
rank sum test in determining whether random samples are
from the same population.
 Sign Test - is important in determining the significance
of differences between two correlated samples. The
“signs” of the test are the algebraic plus or minus values
of the difference of the paired scores.
 Median Test - is a sign test for two independent
samples in contradistinction to two correlated samples, as
is the case with the sign test.
 Spearman rank order correlation - sometimes called
Spearman rho (p) or Spearman’s rank difference correlation, is a
nonparametric statistic that has its counterpart in parametric
calculations in the Pearson product moment correlation.
 Kruskal – Wallis – sometimes known as the Kruskal-Wallis H
test of ranks for k independent samples. The H is the title of the test
and stands for the null hypothesis; and the k for the classes or
samples.
 Kendall coefficient of concordance – is also known as
Kendall’s coefficient W or the concordance coefficient of W. it is a
technique which can be used with advantage in studies involving
rankings made by independent judges.
The nonparametic tests available are:
 Mann-Whitney U-test - in nonparametric statistics is the
counterpart of the t-test in parametric measurements. It may find
use in determining whether the medians of two independent
samples differ from each other to a significant degree.
 Wilcoxon match pairs, signed rank test – is employed
to determine whether two samples differ from each other to a
significant degree when there is a relationship between the
samples.
 Wilcoxon rank sum test – may be used in those
nonparametric situations where measures are expressed as
ranked data in order to test the hypothesis that the samples are
from a common population whose distribution of the measures is
the same as that of the samples.
APPROPRIATE STATISTICAL METHODS BASED ON THE
RESEARCH PROBLEM AND LEVELS OF MEASUREMENT
 the statistical methods appropriate to any studies are always
determined by the research problem and the measurement scale of
the variables used in the study.
CHI - SQUARE
 the most commonly used nonparametric test. It is employed in
instances where a comparison between observed and theoretical
frequencies is present, or in testing the mathematical fit of a
frequency curve to an observed frequency distribution.
T - TESTS
 provides the capability of computing student’s t and probability
levels for testing whether or not the difference between two samples
means is significant (Nie, et al., 1975:267). This type of analysis is
the comparison of two groups of subjects, with the group means as
the basis for comparison.
Two types of T-tests may be performed:
Independent Samples - cases are classified into 2 groups and a test
of mean differences is performed for specified variables;
 Paired Samples – for paired observations arrange casewise, a test
of treatment effects is performed.
CORRELATION ANALYSIS
 Correlation is used when one is interested to know the relationship
between two or more paired variables. According to Blalock
(1972:361), this is where interest is focused primarily on the
exploratory task of finding out which variables are related to a given
variable.

Analysis and interpretation of data

  • 1.
  • 2. ANALYSIS and INTERPRETATION provide answers to the research questions postulated in the study. ANALYSIS means the ordering, manipulating, and summarizing of data to obtain answers to research questions. Its purpose is to reduce data to intelligible and interpretable form so that the relations of research problems can be studied and tested. INTERPRETATION gives the results of analysis, makes inferences pertinent to the research relations studied, and draws conclusions about these relations.
  • 3. STATISTICS is simply a tool in research. In fact, according to Leedy (1974:21), statistics is a language which, through its own special symbols and grammar, takes the numerical facts of life and translates them meaningfully. Statistics thus gathers numerical data. The variations of the data gathered are abstracted based on group characteristics and combined to serve the purpose of description, analysis, interpretation, and possible generalization. According to McGuigan (1987), in research, this is known as the process of concatenation where the statements are “chained together” with other statements.
  • 4. There are two kinds of statistics:  DESCRIPTIVE STATISTICS – allows the researcher to describe the population or sample used in the study.  INFERENTIAL STATISTICS – draws inferences from sample data and actually deals with answering the research questions postulated which are, in some cases, cause and effect relationship.
  • 5. DESCRIPTIVE STATISTICS  describes the characteristics of the population or the sample. To make them meaningful, they are grouped according to the following measures:  Measures of Central Tendency or Averages  Measures of Dispersion or Variability  Measures of Noncentral Location  Measures of Symmetry and/or Asymmetry  Measures of Peakedness or Flatness
  • 6. Measures of Central Tendency or Averages. These include the mean, mode and the median. The mean is a measure obtained by adding all the values in a population or sample and dividing by the number of values that are added (Daniel, 1991:19-20). The mode is simply the most frequent score of scores (Blalock, 1972:72). The median is the value above and below which one half of the observations fall (Norusis, (1984:B- 63)
  • 7. Measures of Dispersion or Variability. These include the variance, standard deviation, and the range. According to Daniel (1991:24), a measure of dispersion conveys information regarding the amount of variability present in a set of idea.
  • 8. The VARIANCE is a measure of the dispersion of the set of scores. It tells us how much the scores are spread out. Thus, the variance is a measure of the spread of the scores; it describes the extent to which the scores differ from each other about their mean. STANDARD DEVIATION thus refers to the deviation of scores from the mean. Where ordinal measures of 1-5 scales (low-high) are used, data most likely have standard deviations of less than one unless, the responses are extremes (i.e., all ones and all fives). The RANGE is defined as the difference between the highest and lowest scores (Blalock, 1972:77)
  • 9. Measures of Noncentral Location. These include the quantiles (i.e., percentiles, deciles, quartiles). The word percent means “per hundred”. Therefore, in using percentages, size is standardized by calculating the number of individuals who would be in a given category if the total number of cases were 100 and if the proportion in each category remains unchanged. Since proportions must add to unity, it is obvious that percentages will sum up to 100 unless the categories are not mutually exclusive or exhaustive (Blalock, 1972:33)
  • 10. Measures of Symmetry and/or Asymmetry. These include the skewness of the frequency distribution. If a distribution is asymmetrical and the larger frequencies tend to be concentrated toward the low end of the variable and the smaller frequencies toward the high end, it is said to be positively skewed. If the opposite holds, the larger frequencies being concentrated toward the high end of the variable and the smaller frequencies toward the low end, the distribution is said to be negatively skewed (Ferguson and Takane, 1989:30).
  • 11. Measures of Peakedness or Flatness of one distribution in relation to another is referred to as Kurtosis. If one distribution is more peaked than another, it may be spoken of as more leptokurtic. If it is less peaked, it is said to be more platykurtic.
  • 12. NONPARAMETRIC TESTS Two types of data are recognized in the application of statistical treatments, these are: parametric data and nonparametric data. Parametric data are measured data and parametric statistical tests assume that the data are normally, or nearly normally, distributed (Best and Kahn, 1998:338). Nonparametric data are distribution free samples which implies that they are free, of independent of the population distribution (Ferguson and Takane, 1989:431). The tests on these data do not rest on the more stringent assumption of normally distributed population (Best and Kahn, 1998:338).
  • 13.  Kolmogorov – Smirnov test - fulfills the function of chi-square in testing goodness of fit and of the Wilcoxon rank sum test in determining whether random samples are from the same population.  Sign Test - is important in determining the significance of differences between two correlated samples. The “signs” of the test are the algebraic plus or minus values of the difference of the paired scores.  Median Test - is a sign test for two independent samples in contradistinction to two correlated samples, as is the case with the sign test.
  • 14.  Spearman rank order correlation - sometimes called Spearman rho (p) or Spearman’s rank difference correlation, is a nonparametric statistic that has its counterpart in parametric calculations in the Pearson product moment correlation.  Kruskal – Wallis – sometimes known as the Kruskal-Wallis H test of ranks for k independent samples. The H is the title of the test and stands for the null hypothesis; and the k for the classes or samples.  Kendall coefficient of concordance – is also known as Kendall’s coefficient W or the concordance coefficient of W. it is a technique which can be used with advantage in studies involving rankings made by independent judges.
  • 15. The nonparametic tests available are:  Mann-Whitney U-test - in nonparametric statistics is the counterpart of the t-test in parametric measurements. It may find use in determining whether the medians of two independent samples differ from each other to a significant degree.  Wilcoxon match pairs, signed rank test – is employed to determine whether two samples differ from each other to a significant degree when there is a relationship between the samples.  Wilcoxon rank sum test – may be used in those nonparametric situations where measures are expressed as ranked data in order to test the hypothesis that the samples are from a common population whose distribution of the measures is the same as that of the samples.
  • 16. APPROPRIATE STATISTICAL METHODS BASED ON THE RESEARCH PROBLEM AND LEVELS OF MEASUREMENT  the statistical methods appropriate to any studies are always determined by the research problem and the measurement scale of the variables used in the study. CHI - SQUARE  the most commonly used nonparametric test. It is employed in instances where a comparison between observed and theoretical frequencies is present, or in testing the mathematical fit of a frequency curve to an observed frequency distribution.
  • 17. T - TESTS  provides the capability of computing student’s t and probability levels for testing whether or not the difference between two samples means is significant (Nie, et al., 1975:267). This type of analysis is the comparison of two groups of subjects, with the group means as the basis for comparison. Two types of T-tests may be performed: Independent Samples - cases are classified into 2 groups and a test of mean differences is performed for specified variables;  Paired Samples – for paired observations arrange casewise, a test of treatment effects is performed.
  • 18. CORRELATION ANALYSIS  Correlation is used when one is interested to know the relationship between two or more paired variables. According to Blalock (1972:361), this is where interest is focused primarily on the exploratory task of finding out which variables are related to a given variable.
