Data Analysis Plan

Every dissertation methodology requires a data analysis plan.  The plan is critical because it tells the reader what analysis will be conducted to examine each of the research hypotheses.  In the data plan, data cleaning, transformations, and assumptions of the analyses should be addressed, in addition to the actual analytic strategy selected.
