Do you need to know the economic effect of a bus rider visiting New York City? How much a songwriter should be paid when his or her music is performed? Or how much a farmer paid for quota to grow tobacco? Then you need data—accurate, objective, and credible. When such data do not exist or are not readily available, they must be collected.
A survey is an efficient way to collect data from a representative sample of the people and organizations about which information is needed. Nathan Associates is experienced in all phases of qualitative and quantitative survey research, including statistical sample design, development and testing of survey instruments, data collection and fieldwork, and data analysis and reporting. We design and implement surveys to gather data for economic impact, intellectual property, and other research studies.
Our ability to fuse subject and survey competencies ensures that data collected through surveys is valid, accurate, and reliable. We also ensure that our research is relevant and usable by carefully explaining our survey methods and results to government policymakers, business managers, and members of the media. Nathan Associates is also experienced in conducting survey-based research for legal proceedings and in communicating effectively with attorneys, judges, and juries.
