Phase 3: Processing and analyzing data

The processing of data is an essential step on the way to their analysis. Studies often contain various different types of data, requiring special knowledge beyond the usual methodological know-how, or they have to be elaborately prepared before they can be analyzed. Comparison with reference data or linking to other data sources also requires data modifications, for which time and expertise are required. Our services support you in this process, as well as in the analysis of data (especially data from official statistics and digital behavioral data). Our Research Data Centers offer additional services for survey programs that require particularly intensive support.

In our Research Data Centers (RDC), we offer a special service for a number of survey programs for which GESIS partially participate in the data collection or permanently take over the tasks of data processing, archiving and delivery. Our RDCs provide broad documentations, variable reports, codebbooks and questionnaires.
