Data analysis focused on identifying results of the key research questions. In addition to answering this core set of questions, the analysis compared the key respondent groups and determined the extent to which certain characteristics of the organization seem to be related to the extent of awareness, the extent of use, the nature of use, and the kinds of barriers experienced.
Both descriptive and inferential statistics, such as the standard t-test, chi-square test, and multiple comparison procedures were performed in the analysis using SAS version 9.0 software. Non-parametric statistical techniques were also used to analyze the data, including the chi-square test for cross tabulations. Content analysis was utilized for the open-ended items on the questionnaire and interview data. Responses were categorized and tabulated for presentation in the report.
