Phase 3: Processing & 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.

We offer customized consulting services for the processing and analysis of your survey data.

Dive deeper into your data with our services for calculating design and fitting weights and handling missing values.

Based on our expertise, we have created tools for the preparation and analysis of official microdata. In addition, we provide metadata and further information.

At GESIS, you can analyze sensitive and restricted-access data on site. We also offer residencies for visiting researchers.

GESIS offers comprehensive services and information on the collection and analysis of digital behavioral data.

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.
