This chapter provides illustrated guidelines for analyzing historical data in social work and social welfare. It argues that the analysis of historical data is really an interpretation, or a reinterpretation, of obtainable materials. In looking at history, researchers do not develop new data, but rather rearrange existing data according to a new hypothesis; the study’s hypothesis is the core of the analysis.

Keywords:   historical research, data analysis, historical data, interpretation, organization
