Your Research

We offer research services to enable you to thoroughly understand your economy or community and put together an evidence base for action.

Based on many years of experience and longitudinal studies of business we have some of the most detailed data sets on rural Devon businesses in existence. We work closely with clients to understand exactly what they are trying to achieve and then devise surveys that will answer their questions.  We understand what it takes to create an efficient and effective survey. We have proven skills in survey design and analysis and have a thorough understanding of research validity and statistical significance in reporting on results.

We have professional research skills, ensuring high quality results, meaningful data and clear reporting.

We also undertake bespoke research. How we do research:

  • Focus groups
  • Seminars
  • Networking events
  • Consultation workshops
  • Qualitative and quantitative surveys

Below you can read the latest local survey we have worked on. This has been invaluable to the local authorities and their partners in drawing down funds to support businesses, and investing this money directly in the things that matter to those businesses.
