Data collection

SHEU provides Data Collection and Analysis Services for clients who are involved in a range of sectors including Health and Education. A list of data processing work is provided.

Data collection
We have decades of experience of collecting quantitative data and composing questionnaires for a range of client groups via paper-based methods. We have also gained experience of using detailed on line questionnaires. We can advise you on all stages of these processes. The design and layout of your survey instruments are crucial and we can support your ideas using professional DTP software and we can commission very cost effective printing. For details of our services using qualitative research methods including interviews visit Evaluation and Monitoring services

Data entry and checking
Our data-entry staff are flexible and efficient and have a very high reliability for punching data onto computer files. We can double-enter (verify) all figures if extra accuracy is required, and use a variety of custom software to check the integrity and accuracy of entered data. We have an experienced team of people who can turn your respondents' written responses into numeric codes for data entry.

Reporting and analysis
We use a variety of statistical software and can produce basic descriptions, complex statistical tests and clear summary reports from your survey data. Again, we can design and commission very cost effective printing of any reports that you need to circulate. Our team is adaptable and flexible to take account of your particular needs.
