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.

We were all very impressed with the spreadsheet and can see that an incredible amount of work has gone into creating this!

Health Improvement Specialist

"As a Deputy Head in a large secondary school I was involved in taking part in a city wide health and wellbeing survey over a period of six years. Completing the survey every two years grew in importance year on year, with the final cycle having a major impact on our SDP, PHSE curriculum, Ofsted outcomes and governor understanding.
Over the six year period we moved from a small sample in two tutor groups filling in a paper survey to two year groups completing an online survey. The reports produced give graphical analysis of a wide range of issues. As a result of the survey we increased the number of PSHE workshop days for students to address issues such as smoking, drug and alcohol awareness, anti-bullying workshops. The surveys helped Governors make a positive informed decision to allow Brook Advisory Clinic nurses on site to support students.
As a result of taking part and using the evidence provided we were able to offer more support for students which had a direct impact on improved attendance and outcomes."

"The Schools Health Education Unit is the jewel in the crown of the Health Education Authority." Major General Sir John Acland 1928 - 2006

Major General Sir John Acland

"This week I have been working on a major strategy for service design -- it is easy to get solely focussed on hospitals, performance targets, and work force planning -- all very important; but at the same the needs of young people and how we need to work across agencies to address the health needs of today and tomorrow must be recognised. SHEU is founded to do just this."

PCT Performance Manager

"As a result of the survey we reviewed and amended PSHE schemes of work, we are currently working on a "Green Travel Plan", a morning breakfast club was established and we further developed 6th Form mentoring."
