Would it be possible to combine the results of a number of independent but related studies using statistical methods to retrieve, select and combine the data – a process referred to as meta-analysis? The case may also occur where a range of independent surveys has already been conducted and their results published. While the results on a survey in the USA may not be directly applicable to the business you are looking at in the United Kingdom, the conclusions are likely to be of interest and the questions employed may also be suitable for your purposes.

A diagrammatic approach may be used to provide a solution to this type of problem. 12 TREE DIAGRAM If a problem involves a sequence of events it is useful to employ a tree diagram to explore the full range of possibilities. 11. 1. 5 represent events, with the individual points being referred to as nodes.
