The analysis of your results depends on a well-designed survey. All the sophisticated statistics from our PhD statistician doesn't mean much if the data quality is poor. Quality data starts with expert survey design. You results will benefit from superior data analytics if you start with a well-designed survey. This is why we focus on questions like; How many questions is “too many”? What makes a question “unnecessary”? How can you tell if your questions are “too general”? Why do you need to understand the perceptions of those taking my survey? How can you tell ahead of time whether a question will provide usable information or not?, and more.
Our years of experience helps us identify what works. Let us help you create best practice surveys that get you the information you need.
