Quantification of Data

Study of the existing pattern of qualitative data.


Study of the methods currently used for the analysis of qualitative
data.
Assigning variables to qualitative data.
Performing basic statistics like Mean, Median , Mode, Standard
deviation etc. on the data.
Generating interaction matrix for the assigned variables to find the
interrelationships between the variables.
Making inferences from the analyzed data.
Comparing the inferences from new approach adopted and the
previous methods.











Cost Economics of EIA
In any comprehensive EIA one should study the impact of all
possible indicators. But such an exercise will be cumbersome,
costly, and time consuming. It is therefore desirable to seek a
method by which one can assess the relative importance if the
impacting indicators and can draw up a hierarchical relationship
among them.
Techniques presently available for the above problem are
ISM(Interpretive structural modeling) and MICMAC (cross impact
matrix-multiplication applied to classification).
A software package is developed using above two techniques. The
name of the software is INTRA- A METHODOLOGY FOR THE
SELECTION OF MOST INFLUENTIAL PARAMETERS FOR STUDY SO
AS TO REDUCE THE COST OF EIA.
Study of ISM process (Reachability and Transitive inference)
Definition of indicators.
Developing a binary matrix(Adjacency matrix)
Obtaining reachability matrix.
Obtaining hierarchical matrix.
Developing the digraphs.
Example of a adjacency matrix
V1 V2 V3
V1 1 0 1
V2 1 1 O
V3 0 0 1


Study of MICMAC process
Study of MICMAC principle
Stabilization of fuzzy matrix.
Key indicators.
Behavioural classification of the system
indicators.
After having thorough knowledge of the existing techniques on
parameter optimization, developing new techniques and
pathways to reach a feasible number of parameters.
New techniques may involve
Taking parameters in terms of
PIUs(Parameter importance units) that is
having some importance factor for each
parameter.
Assigning damaging factors to parameters
and calculating PDFs(parameter damaging
factors).











DEVELOPING A PROGRAME IN MS EXCEL VB FOR STUDYING
DEVELOPMENTAL TRENDS AND THEIR ENVIRONMENTAL
IMPACTS
The programe will be an extension of SMART-ALEC ( Statistical
measurements for assessing regional trends and longterm
environmental consequences)
The programe will have following structure
Basic statistics
Mean, Median, Mode
Root mean square value
Range, variance
Std. deviation,skewness.
Trend analysis
Kendalls test
Slope test

Stochastic analysis
Normal distribution and recheck.
Log normal transformation
Square root transformation
Regression analysis
Linear regression (LR)
Exponential LR
Power LR
Polynomial regression
Forecasting analysis
Single moving average
Double moving average
Single exponential smoothing
Double, triple exp. smoothing
Co-relation analysis
x & y co-relation
y & x co-relation
Hypothesis testing
T-test
Chi-square test
Analysis of variance
One way ANOVA
Two way ANOVA
After having entered the data the programe will process the above
statistical measures.
