The module aims to provide a student with a deep understanding of data and information. It will examine what information is, how it is collected, manipulated, presented and interpreted and why data driven decision making is a much more subjective process than it might appear. The primary aim is to provide a strong foundation of ideas and that will properly prepare students for further study in quantitative analysis. The secondary aim is provide some of the skills necessary to manipulate and manage data.
This module explores the concepts, principles and applications of various approaches to data analysis and interpretation for both qualitative (including thematic content analysis) and quantitative methods (including analysis of difference, variance and relationship).
