Ad hoc analysis
What is an ad hoc analysis?
An ad hoc analysis is a form of data analysis in which the data is not structured in advance. Instead, an ad hoc analysis is performed when a problem arises or a question exists that can be answered with the available data.
In an ad hoc analysis, the data will typically be in an unstructured format, meaning that it is not in a table or other organized format. Instead, the data must be analyzed and interpreted before it can be used. Ad hoc analysis can be difficult due to its disorganized nature, but it has the advantage of being flexible and adaptable to any situation.
