Working on my Master’s Thesis in Geography, and it is fairly standard to provide a “Study Area” section that describes the location of study.

  • I. Introduction
  • II. Study Area
  • III. Methods

I have some basic summary statistics about the Twitter data that I collected, such as the number of users from which tweets were collected using Method A in a specific geographic area as well as summary statistics, but also the count of users from tweets collected using a separate method, Method B for collection.

I would like to include this contextual data in this section, however it seems inappropriate to reference a method not yet introduced in the paper, would it be?
Additionally, what would be an appropriate way to do this.
