Survey Methods Consulting for Data Analysis

We provide tailor-made consulting services for your research project. We help you to prepare your data so that you can answer your research questions in your analysis.

In order to obtain adequate answers to your research questions, the data must be prepared and processed in line with your research questions. Our GESIS experts will be happy to advise you on this process. Our consulting services include the calculation of design and adjustment weights for a suitable estimate for the target population, the imputation of missing values, and the handling of non-response bias. If you use different data sources for comparison, harmonisation of socio-structural or content variables is unavoidable. Here, too, you can count on our consulting expertise.
