Business and organisations that can most benefit from our services usually often
|1||We can validate that your polling fieldwork is asking the right questions and has a sufficient sample size, in order to provide useful regression insight. Most reputable polling is usually easily compatible with regression techniques, whether or not your pollster has used regression before. Normally we check the questions before fieldwork commences, but regression can often be done retrospectively on polls which are already completed as long as the raw data files are still available.|
|2||Fieldwork is conducted in the usual way by your pollster. If you do not have an existing pollster, we will be happy to discuss possible polling options which suit your circumstances.|
|3||Once fieldwork is completed, we process the raw data files to produce the regression and apply it to your target questions and target areas.|
|4||You receive the output in a convenient format with full explanations and the opportunity to discuss the results with us.|

Regression polling, prediction and solutions can be charged either on a fixed-fee basis, or as an hourly rate. Which is used depends partly on whether the project is well-defined or more open-ended.
Stand-alone electoral data is charged on a "per ward" basis, with price reductions for larger purchases.
