When it comes to analyzing the results from effect studies, some specific statistical methods need to be used, primarily due to the time component that is used in the outcome measure. In addition, there is a recent call for multilevel analyses taking cluster effect (e.g. teams or regions) into account. These statistical measures are not easy to conduct, especially when one is not aware of what is happening to the data. This chapter provides sufficient knowledge on the statistical side of things to be able to fully understand how these analyses work.
