[Extract] Analysis is the study and examination of data. These data may be quantitative (numerical) as well as qualitative. Analysis of both quantitative and qualitative data is necessary to determine community health needs and community strengths and identify patterns of health responses and trends in health care use. During analysis, any need for further data collection is revealed as gaps and incongruities in the community assessment data. Chapter 10 outlined the various sources of data that are used in a community health assessment. This chapter addresses how these data sets can be analysed with reference to both the community-as-partner model and Battye's model of environmental scanning. The Campsie Well Women's Clinic case study is used through out to demonstrate each step in the process of analysing the community core and its eight subsystems.
