Acentric offers a survey processing service in partnership with a company located in the EU. By combining local and international perspectives you get better quality research.

This is particularly suited to DIY surveys, where you intend to gather your own data using your own survey tool, but you require outside expertise for analysis.

How it works – a simple four step process:

  • You write your own questonnaire and email it to us.
  • We will examine the questionnaire and email you feedback.
  • You run the survey, for instance using SurveyMonkey, Zoho Surveys, or any other survey software tool.
  • We will analyze it for you.

What is in a survey report?

Your survey report includes two files:

  • An Excel file which includes tabular and other analytical output
  • A verbal report in PDF format

The survey report covers:

Survey Pre-test. This step verifies the survey questionnaire and the data gathering process work as expected, before the survey begins. We proof question text, answer scale, respondent fatigue, and more for each question of your survey.

Data coding. Survey data must be coded in order to be analyzed (read also How to code survey data). We will code it for you.

Sample size sensitivity analysis. We evaluate the survey sample, its size, the confidence interval, and more, in order to interpret the survey data correctly.

2x Cross-Tables. You receive two sets of cross tables, including all questions crossed against all questions, significance test, both column and row percentages, test of independence and correlation of variables.

Descriptive statistics & Box-plots. Each question is described and evaluated according to missing answers, averages, distribution of respondent answers, and much more.

Correlation matrix. This survey report section identifies how rating-based survey questions are related.

2x Cluster analysis. These analyses help finding homogeneous groups in the survey data. Both respondents (rows) and closed-ended questions (columns) are analyzed separately, including cross tables of clusters.

Suggestions & tips. On how to reduce respondent fatigue, sample design, and more.

Verbal interpretation of the survey results. This is the PDF file where all survey findings are described in plain English. Click here for examples of the type of analysis to expect.
