Hey, Jim:

 

Does your theme have it's own dashboard or options area?  If so there may be a box there to paste the script snippet provided by Google.

 

If you don't have that option, there's a plugin for that! Here's one I have used:

This information may help as well. http://www.wpbeginner.com/beginners-guide/how-to-install-google-analytics-in-wordpress/

I paste the code in the header.php file, but there are the plugins (I don't like to trust them) and there is a way to places the code in the functions.php file as well.
