Definition of Analysis:

  1. Detailed examination of the elements or structure of something.

  2. An examination of data and facts to uncover and understand cause-effect relationships, thus providing basis for problem solving and decision making.

  3. A systematic examination and evaluation of data or information, by breaking it into its component parts to uncover their interrelationships. Opposite of synthesis.

  4. Short for psychoanalysis.
