I didn’t make a time plan for data analysis. I didn’t really know I had to!
How did I miss this vital part of Phd research planning? How did my Institute even let me pass my Doctoral Assessment?!!!
So here it is
experienced researchers…routinely recommend allowing a working period for analysis of data that is two to five times as long as the period taken to make arrangements and gather data (Footnote, page 76. Bazeley and Jackson 2013).
That means my data ANALYSIS should have taken 2- 5 years at least. Perhaps it explains why I am still here at the moment!
