Phase 4: Data analysis

You require unique, specific methods to analyze your data or draw upon other data sources for comparison? We offer consultation, make data available for secondary analysis or for reference and also offer a special data service.

Studies often contain various different types of data, requiring special knowledge beyond the usual methodological know-how. The newly collected data is usually compared with results from other studies to obtain an overall, complete picture of the research subject. We offer consultation and support for your data and reference data analysis as well as during the secondary analysis.
