Key Concepts

Data collection is the systematic recording of information; data analysis involves working to uncover patterns and trends in data sets; data interpretation involves explaining those patterns and trends.

Scientists interpret data based on their background knowledge and experience, thus different scientists can interpret the same data in different ways.

By publishing their data and the techniques they used to analyze and interpret that data, scientists give the community the opportunity to both review the data and use it in future research.
