“Data Cleaning” roots out erroneous data; “Initial Analysis” assesses the quality of the data; “Main Data Analysis” determines the meaning of the data; the “Final Analysis” provides additional screening. Each of these steps requires a unique skill set, involving statistical mathematics and computer software, and the qualified data analyst.
