comparative analysis:

. . . an apples-to-apples comparison method or technique. Starting with a frame of reference as a basis for examining two or more sets of data, products, systems, processes, or things that are comparable alternatives, comparative analyses are projects which typically utilize working documents to report activities as they progress.

As an empirical method, comparative analysis avoids the pitfalls of casual analysis which is open to criticism when non-comparables are are obviously used.

Comparative analysis is a form of business analytics used by site selectors as they compare what two or more locations under consideration have to offer in light of a set of selection criteria. Site selection is a component of enterprise development; therefore, site selection criteria as project specifications set the frame of reference. Site location work begins with identifying resource and service providers as contacts and gathering data (location intelligence).

Comparative analysis is used to examine information in financials. An article titled Trend Analysis Vs. Comparative Analysis is available at the eHow website. YouTube has a video titled Technical Writing Skills : How to Write a Comparative Analysis or Essay.
