## What Do I Do With All This Data?

I have a research project involving about ~90 subjects in two (self-selected) groups. I have collected a number of variables about these subjects (from public sources), and now I would like to do some statistical tests to say whether these variables are significantly correlated with membership in one group or the other. How do I do this? I have a basic knowledge of R and access to Stata 14.

## Career Development Suggestions for making sense of and displaying data

I currently work for a growing company doing various social media marketing for small businesses. I have been finding that I receive a lot of satisfaction doing activities related to what I learned in library school. I enjoy collecting, organizing, and providing data and information for our internal staff and making things approachable. One weakness I see is that we are especially data rich and insight poor with social media. I would like to know if there are any recommended programs for data mining or statistical analysis?
