Reorganization: Presenting Data Analysis About Military Sexual Trauma

Srimayi L -

Hello everyone! As I mentioned in my last post, I will now provide some updates on my data analysis. To restate my process, I performed a T-Test for three pairs of data sets to determine if there was a statistically significant difference between them. 

The data with the military and general sexual assault rates for the western and eastern countries both resulted in p-values of above 0.05, making the difference not statistically significant. However, I did expect this as the data sets were pertaining to the same culture, and several of the rates I had used were from a variety of sources and had some limitations that made them inconsistent.

Despite these inconsistencies, my last set of data points with military sexual trauma rates from the eastern and western countries did result in a p-value of 0.05 which does indicate that there was a statistically significant difference between the two data sets. This was what I had hoped to see from this analysis as I intended to prove that there was a difference in the reporting rates between the two groups.

Apart from the statistical difference seen, a clinical difference can also be observed when looking at the individual rates and mean for each group as one is greater than the other which was the western group having greater reporting rates than the eastern group in this case.

For these three data sets, I am making graphs to visually represent the information, so it is easier to understand. Since the data is in two separate groups, I am making bar graphs separated accordingly to show all of the rates. 

With the conclusion of my data analysis, I have officially finished my research process and will focus on finishing my final presentation and product for which I intend on making a poster board and possibly pamphlets. This whole journey was really amazing, and I will definitely detail more about it in my coming final posts!

Thanks for reading, and see you next week!
