    We can explain the connections between phenomena through statistical models and tests.

    4) Surveys

  • Analysis process

    Have you identified the need for statistical analysis or reporting based on common state data domains or your own substantive data?

    The analysis process begins with defining the assignment, which is done through close collaboration between the analysis services and the client. After this, the assignment proceeds as outlined in the model below.

    The analysis services’ process description

    The analysis process description consists of the following elements:

    1. Help with analysis?
      A client requires analysed information in order to develop their operations and contacts the service.
    2. Identifying specific requirements
      The research question, the extent of the commission and available information sources are determined through discussions with the client.
    3. Priorities and schedules
      Commissions are prioritised based on their extent, the expected benefits and time constraints. A schedule is created and an organisation to perform the analysis is assigned (e.g. State Treasury, Palkeet, Hansel).
    4. Background assessment
      The work begins with an assessment of the related information sources and studies. If the existing information is insufficient, more is acquired (e.g. via a questionnaire). The research question is considered from various angles.
    5. Preliminary analysis
      Data from selected sources is combined. Simultaneously, the quality and usability of this data is evaluated. For example, calculation models may be created, depending on the case. Visualisations are created to support the analysis.
    6. Creating the final analysis
      The preliminary results are discussed with the client, after which the analysis model is adjusted based on the client’s feedback. The reliability of the analysis is evaluated and improved. The final visualisations are created.
    7. Presenting the results and further work
      The results from the analysis are presented to the client. The utilisation of the analysis in the development of their operations is discussed with the client. Any future commissions that might be required are negotiated.
    8. Feedback and assessment
      Feedback is requested on the commissions’ success. During this phase, an assessment of how well the organisation has managed to utilise the analysis to improve their operations is also conducted. We will also evaluate the scalability of our analysis model to be used in other organisations.
    9. Sharing what we have learned
      We will create a description and an assessment of all our commissions. For most commissions, we will create a case description and post it on Tietokiri.fi, in order to share what we have learned with others.
