Samuel Hamilton reports:
"Trend analysis reports examine data in an effort to determine if certain actions or reactions occur in a patterned trend. Trend analysis reports aid workers and researchers in a multitude of fields as they attempt to make predictions about their subject matter. The summary component of a trend analysis report offers general statements about all of the components of the report as a type of overview. Writing a trend analysis summary requires you to briefly describe each component of the report and provide a summative statement regarding the findings of the report...Describe the collected data analyzed within the report...[A] general statement about both the type of data gathered and the manner in which the data was gathered is important in your summary...Detail the criteria you used to evaluate the data. If you borrowed criteria or evaluative methods from other researchers, cite their contributions to your report...List any and all results that seem to indicate trends...Explain any recommendations your trend analysis report will make in the conclusion section of the report."
