ADVANTAGES AND DISADVANTAGES OF STATISTICS
The main advantages of statistics are: they are familiar to library staff and managers they can be analysed relatively quickly information is collected in a standardised way they are usually straightforward to analyse they overcome the difficulties of encouraging participation by users
they are often required and respected by decision-makers within the institution and beyond eg : funders, government they support qualitative data obtained from questionnaires, interviews etc with 'hard facts' they are useful for benchmarking purposes.
The main disadvantages of statistics are: they are not an appropriate method to understand issues in great depth and identify ways to solve problems highlighted they are not suitable to evaluate user opinions, needs or satisfaction with services it may be time-consuming to arrange methods of data collection eg: contacting vendors, liaising with IT departments
the statistics provided from different sources, eg : by different vendors, may not be comparable requires technical expertise because the field is changing so rapidly, statistics may not be comparable yearon-year
