I'm getting quite lost on the usage of the definitive article "the" in front of activity nouns like "analysis". Which one of the following is correct and why?
A. Joe Bloggs is responsible for incident data analysis.
B. Joe Bloggs is responsible for the incident data analysis.
I find many examples of when the article is used without referring to a specific incident. For instance, below is an extract from a journal article on traffic incidents in Australia.
Attention is then directed towards the incident data analysis from different points of view along with categorising the data into homogenous patterns for data grouping analysis purposes.
