Interpretation Interpretation

The last stage in statistical investigation is interpretation, i.e., drawing conclusions from the data collected and analysed. The interpretation of data is a difficult task and necessitates a high degree of skill and experience. If the data that have been analysed are not properly interpreted, the whole object of the investigation may be defeated and fallacious conclusions drawn. Correct interpretation will lead to a valid conclusion of the study and thus can aid in decision making.
