7. Analysing the data

Analysing the data collected with the sexual network questionnaire is somewhat more complicated than for the prevention indicators questionnaire. Skills in both computation and data analysis will be essential for any research group implementing the survey. The question of how to simplify the data analysis is being studied and will, it is hoped, be clearer after completion of the five-city survey now being undertaken. Comparisons of the data from those surveys may give insights into which facts are most useful, and how to most straightforwardly extract them from the data collected.
