Research analysts must carefully examine data and produce meaningful information for their employer. This can involve not only drawing meaning from the data, but also checking to make sure the data is correct and using it to validate ideas and theories. When not examining or verifying information, a research analyst must work with their superiors to demonstrate what they have learned from their data and how it can be applied in the future for their business.
