This article argues for a particular view of advanced statistical data analysis within an eclectic methodology for Education Policy research and is predicated on the notion that the function of such analysis is to identify higher-order relationships in quantitative research data. The article outlines the application of advanced statistical analysis in two less advanced countries with the aim of promoting such analysis among researchers and decision-makers in those countries.
