Do you detect any bias in how the data are presented? PART2: Choosing Data Analysis and Presentation Techniques. post a description of your chosen approach to data analysis for your research question, including the following: Explain how this data analysis approach will help answer your research question.

Identify strategies you might use to present the results of this type of data analysis. Identify the challenges you foresee in interpreting and making inferences with this approach to data analysis.
