Structured data analysis (statistics)

Structured data analysis is the statistical data analysis of structured data. Either in the form of a priori structure such as multiple-choice questionnaires or in situations with the need to search for structure that fits the given data, either exactly or approximately. This structure can then be used for making comparisons, predictions, manipulations etc.
