Data analytic methods cover the myriad techniques used to make sense of the information collected through research. Organizational scientists use a variety of analytic methods to clean/screen data, describe characteristics of the data, test hypotheses, and draw inferences. Broadly speaking, data analytic methods also include topics of measurement (e.g., reliability, validity) and statistical significance testing (e.g., null hypothesis significance testing [NHST], Bayesian approaches). Frequently, data analytic methods are discussed in conjunction with research design because of the fundamental relations between the two.
