Technical and informed analysis sits at the heart of what we do. From small and complex to large or very large datasets including semi-identical responses to consultation, we use always the same approach: a coding framework bespoke to each project to ensure consistency, accuracy and the required level of detailed analysis.
We abide by the following principles every time we analyse data:
|Impartiality||We don't take positions on the issues|
|Integrity||We don't work on issues where we feel we cannot be impartial|
|Transparency||We believe that individuals who participate in a consultation process have a right to see what other participants think|
|Auditability||We keep meticulous records of participation|
People who have taken the time and trouble to engage in a project should receive feedback on how their input has contributed to decision and actions – and if not, why not
Public consultation throws up a wealth of data which requires robust analysis to inform decision making. We are used to delivering high-quality reports to tight timescales, and have proven experience in creating consultation reports in which respondents can see their opinions reflected, and upon which sound policy decisions can be made.
