What is the importance of Standardization of data in research in psychology.

Oct 13th, 2015

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Standardization in psychology ensures that the different variables considered in the sample make equal contribution to the outcome or the results of the analysis. This is especially important in cases where the data to be analyzed is quite varied. For instance, a data ranging from 1 to 100 may need to be standardized especially if most of the variables fall in one extreme end. Standardization also helps in scaling data to make it easy to analyze. This is especially the case when the data is quite huge such that it cannot be easily analyzed as a whole. Thus, standardization is quite important in making data easier to analyze and to make the results more helpful in decision making.
