What is the difference between "Findings and Analysis"?

And do I need to quote a lot in the findings section?

  • Sociology Ethnic Studies - ,

    Findings =
    ~ Something that has been found.
    ~ A conclusion reached after examination or investigation: the finding of a grand jury; a coroner's findings.
    ~ A statement or document containing an authoritative decision or conclusion: a presidential finding that authorized the covert operation.

    Analysis:
    ~ The separation of an intellectual or material whole into its constituent parts for individual study.
    ~ The study of such constituent parts and their interrelationships in making up a whole.
    ~ A spoken or written presentation of such study: published an analysis of poetic meter.

    Yes, you'd be presenting LOTS of data in the findings section of a paper (and therefore, many citations!); if the analysis is yours, no quotations or citations are needed, but if you are reporting on the analysis by someone else, you'll need citations there, too.
