Data is the need of the hour, and its collection and analysis is the base of any business and research success now. Hence data collection and data analytics is going to be the keys to success in many fields. Data collection is the process of collecting and measuring the data on targeted variables through a thoroughly established system to evaluate outcomes by answering relevant questions. Data Analytics is a process that involves the molded data to be examined for interpretation to find out relevant information, propose conclusions, and aid in decision making of research problems. Data collection is gathering of information from various sources, and data analytics is to process them for getting useful insights from it. The difference between them apart from their primary functions is in their mode of inter-related activities. For data collected from different sources and methods need specific data analysis methods and tools to process and get insights from them.

A meta-analysis is a statistical analysis that combines the results of multiple scientific studies. Meta-analysis can be performed when there are multiple scientific studies addressing the same question, with each individual study reporting measurements that are expected to have some degree of error. The aim then is to use approaches from statistics to derive a pooled estimate closest to the unknown common truth based on how this error is perceived. Existing methods for meta-analysis yield a weighted average from the results of the individual studies, and what differs is the manner in which these weights are allocated and also the manner in which the uncertainty is computed around the point estimate thus generated. In addition to providing an estimate of the unknown common truth, meta-analysis has the capacity to contrast results from different studies and identify patterns among study results, sources of disagreement among those results, or other interesting relationships that may come to light in the context of multiple studies.
