Abstract

Whitesell, Rebecca, The Utility of Exploratory Data Analysis Techniques in Analyzing Outcome Measures Used in Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine Research. Master of Public Health (Clinical Research), December 2005, 79 pp., 2 tables, 42 illustrations, references, 33 titles. The intent of this thesis project is to describe how Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine (OMM) researchers can use the theory of Exploratory Data Analysis (EDA) to enhance their ability to analyze research findings. This was achieved by evaluating the most frequently used outcome measures in OMM research published since 1993, describing EDA and its relevance to the types of data used in OMM research, and illustrating the ways EDA can be used in two current OMM studies to gain insights into the data and to shape future research questions.
