This chapter focuses on the analysis and interpretation of data collected during evaluations of disability and how such data can help the evaluator respond to the referral questions. It describes the steps involved in data analysis and interpretation, from developing hypotheses and organizing data to assessing data and formulating opinions. Self-report data, third-party information, and data obtained from psychological and neuropsychological testing are discussed, along with considerations for establishing the existence of functional impairments, relating functional impairments to the demands of the claimant's job, and when to rule out other causes of work impairment.
