Data collection

Qa Research also offers quantitative and qualitative data collection and fieldwork services to organisations in the UK and internationally.

Key resources available include:

  • National field force of face to face interviewers
  • In-house telephone research contact centre
  • Focus group recruitment, moderation and transcription
  • In-depth interview recruitment, interview and transcription or appointment booking for you to conduct your own interviews.
  • Hall Tests

We are happy to receive your questionnaire / discussion guide and collect the data. However, we also offer a consultancy service whereby we may recommend subtle  amendments to the language or wording within your script to ensure your survey/guide  is carefully scripted to engage with the respondents you are targeting. This allows you to maximise the response rate and improve the quality of your final data set.

In terms of outputs for quantitative data collection services we can provide you with raw data files so that you can undertake your own analysis. But we also have our own in-house Data Analysts who can conduct data analysis for you (based on your own spec, if you prefer) and provide you with a set of easy to use data tables.

For qualitative and quantitative data collection services we can provide you with audio / video files so that you can analyse the data yourself or provide transcriptions of the groups / depth interviews.

For more information about our data collection services contact helen.hardcastle@qaresearch.co.uk or call 01904 632039

Critical friend & advisory services

Improve your own research or evaluation outcomes by accessing our knowledge, experience and expertise.

Qa has nearly 30 years experience conducting an extensive range of research and evaluation studies for clients in specific sectors.

We are offering to share what we have learnt in an advisory capacity to help clients undertaking whole studies themselves or delivering certain methodologies as part of a study.

Our Critical Friend and Advisory Services are tailored to suit your requirements. This could vary from us reviewing your questionnaire and suggesting improvements to working with you during the whole project lifecycle to provide advice and support throughout.

Our service goes beyond purely helping you to tweak the technicalities of a method or process to advising on the essential and often unforeseen practicalities of research that if considered properly, really help to ensure the outcomes you require are achieved to a high standard.

For further details about our Critical Friend and Advisory Services please contact richard.bryan@qaresearch.co.uk or call 01904 632039
