Reporting Services

Cross Tabulation

We turn the data collected from your surveys into a well-organized form that best suits your expressed needs. Our data processing software, MERLIN, is one of the best packages of its kind. Some, but by no means all, of our capabilities include:

  • Cleaning data
  • Weighting
  • Ranking
  • Netting
  • Statistics such as mean, median, standard deviation, standard error
  • Horizontal and/or vertical percentages
  • Current date and/or page numbers
  • Customizable number of decimal places
  • Summary tables
  • Up to 30 banner points, more if not printed
  • Master/Trailer studies
  • Significance testing up to two levels, usually 90% and 95% but can be any percentage
  • Electronic tables (MS Word or MS Excel)
  • Results can be emailed, downloaded from our secure website, delivered on CD, or laser printed and delivered
  • Tabulation from data in most formats (fixed field ASCII, tab or comma delimited, Excel, Access, SPSS, column binary)
  • We can produce a "cleaned" data file in any of the formats above for your records or further analysis

Custom Reports

We have developed a highly efficient process for interfacing our cross tabulation programs and Microsoft Excel or Word to create custom reports. This method enables us to produce high-volume, individually customized reports at a very low cost per report. These reports can include analysis, graphs, summary tables, instructions, and verbatim comments.

Statistical Analysis

We have the full BMDP suite of statistical analysis programs, SPSS, several lesser known packages, and many custom built statistical programs. Below are some of the more popular.

  • t Tests
  • z Tests
  • Chi-Square Tests
  • Analysis of Variance
  • Factor Analysis
  • Stepwise Discriminant Analysis
  • Stepwise Regression
  • Correlations with Options for Incomplete Data

Additional Services

Over the years we have worked closely with many companies and talented individuals. When one of our clients has a request such as data analysis, study/questionnaire design, or sample selection, we can subcontract the appropriate people. Thus, we have all the capabilities of a "full service market research company". Although, for the following reasons, we do not advertise this.

Many of our clients are full service market research companies. We do not wish to compete with them. They have their specialties and our niche is to fill in where either they do not have our capabilities or they do not wish to develop them.

Most of our clients are large companies with great capabilities for data analysis, but their in-house data collection/processing/report generation is too expensive, too inflexible, or too busy. We are very good at providing exactly what this type of client needs. Such as the capability of dealing with a very complex corporate structure and working well with a wide variety of locations and departments.

The last type of client we work with is the independent researcher. We provide whatever services they need. With our help they can tackle jobs that are much larger than they would otherwise attempt.

Survey Services

Online Surveys

Our custom online surveys are convenient, cost-effective, and very flexible. Each is custom designed to meet your exact requirements. Implementing your questionnaire will usually take no more than a few days. Once in the field, we will provide you with a link to real time response rates, and, if needed, we can also provide a link to real time results.

For your sample, you can send us a list of e-mail addresses, US mail addresses, place a link to the survey on your website, or we can work with many different companies who maintain lists or panels of respondents. Once your study is underway, we can send e-mail or paper reminder letters. Other communications, such as thank you notes, follow-up letters, or a list of contest winners can also be generated.

Within an online questionnaire, we can handle any type of question, video, images, skipping over questions, allowing a respondent to go to previous pages, real time data checking, data piping, individualized questions, participant re-entry, and question order randomization. Our programs are very flexible. If you have a unique situation, we welcome the challenge.

Mail Surveys

We can print and/or distribute any number of paper questionnaires. You can have us customize your questionnaires to include items such as respondent number, sales rep name, market, or any other information necessary. We will then collect the questionnaires by one or more of several methods, such as business reply mail, regular mail, or even fax. Alternatively, if you wish to collect them, you can bulk ship them to us from time to time.

As the questionnaires come in each day we will track, code and key them. When the time comes to cutoff the survey, we can quickly code/key the last questionnaires and start on reporting your results.

Data Entry/Coding

We provide fast, highly accurate, and cost efficient data capture from paper documents. Our coding department is quick and accurate. We can provide very general or very specific coding depending on your needs.

Verbatim Comments

The verbatim comments captured in data entry can be spell checked and edited to remove proper names if necessary. We produce many different styles of verbatim comment reports.

Pricing

Our customers have always been very complimentary of our pricing. We treat every project individually. Send us a questionnaire with your service requirements or a Request for Proposal and we will be happy to provide you with a bid.

Our most effective advertising has always been to do an excellent job for a fair price. Our extraordinarily high customer and employee retention has validated this method of doing business.
