Prior to processing the data, we encourage an analytic planning meeting with our clients, regardless of whether we are executing all stages of the research, or solely field and tab. The purpose is to ensure that everyone has all the data they need, in its appropriate format, to answer the research questions. Once this is completed, the data is run, and the analysis phase begins. For larger, more strategic projects, we may recommend a meeting after a topline report has been issued to ensure the data makes sense and the format of the analysis meets expectations. Once the final report has been provided, we are always available to present the results in-person, if desired.
