Verified information; something known to exist or to have happened. A confirmed inventory of a resource of one's own service Direct Information The content of reports, research, and analytic reflection on an intelligence issue that helps analysts and their consumers evaluate the likelihood that something is factual and thereby reduces uncertainty, Information relating to an intelligence issue under scrutiny the details of which can, as a rule, be considered factual, because of the nature of the source, the source's direct access to the information, and the concrete and readily verifiable character of the contents COMINT or OSINT quoting what a foreign official said; IMINT providing a count of the number of ships at a pier.
First step 1 Review the questions. The questions generated before the information was gathered should be reviewed. Why was this particular information necessary? What questions was it to answer? What kinds of decisions are to be made based on this information?
Review the questions It is common for people to work very hard planning for the information they need and then, once the information is collected to not look back and renew their understanding of the central issues and key questions. Important results that were not anticipated should not, however, be ignored.
Sometimes putting information together will raise important, unforeseen and relevant questions. These can be noted for future reference and pointed out in the presentation of results. Second step 2 Organize the information. The mechanics of organizing information for analysis will vary according to the thinking processes of different people.
Sometimes it is best not to force a certain way of thinking. On the other hand, there is a certain logic that can be followed. Some may be partly analyzed, and some may need analysis.
Third step 3 Decide how to analyze information. Analysis of parts may be simply adding up numbers and averaging them or comparing information to examine the relationship of one thing to another, or two things together.
Decide how to analyze information Analysis can also take note of similarities It can contrast information by setting two things in opposition so as to show the differences It can relate pieces of information to establish relationships between them Fourth step 4 Analyze quantitative information.
It is likely that quantitative numbers information will be computer by hand, or with the use of adding machines. Two straightforward ways to analyze information are Tally Sheets and Summary Sheets. Tally sheets Tally sheets are useful for summarizing information such as production figures, survival, figures, and nursery sales.
It is especially important to think carefully about the pieces of information that, when paired, will answer the questions that were originally asked.
The tally sheet is an especially good way to analyze information when literacy is not high. When the tally sheet is prepared at a meeting, or in a group, patterns emerge in a way which everyone can see.
Analyze quantitative information Summary sheets To show information individually in order to see clearly the differences between each piece of information, a Summary Sheet can be used.
They are especially useful for analyzing information from interviews. Summary sheets Fifth step 5 Analyze qualitative information. Analysis of qualitative descriptive information is a creative and critical process. The way the information has been gathered will probably determine how it can best be analyzed.
For example, if drawings of a community have been done at the beginning, middle and end of the project, can be analyzed by presenting a series of drawings to a number of individuals and asking them to: Analyze qualitative information Sixth step 6 Integrate the information.
Putting the analyzed parts together in a way that tells the complete story can be done by the team that has been assigned to gather and analyze information. Partial analysis can be presented to the larger community group for completion.A publication of recent and historical energy statistics.

Analyze qualitative information. Analysis of qualitative (descriptive) information is a creative and critical process. The way the information has been gathered will probably determine how it can best be analyzed. Production theory is the study of production, or the economic process of converting inputs into outputs.
Production uses resources to create a good or service that is suitable for use, gift -giving in a gift economy, or exchange in a market economy.
