Professional Data Analysis Services

Fee-Based Consulting

Methodology, Measurement and Statistical Analysis (MMSA) offers professional data analysis and related services at hourly rates. There are two broad contexts for these services: Post Award and Ad Hoc. For post award services, Methodology, Measurement and Statistical Analysis (MMSA) can be included in the proposal budget as a resource for analyzing the data resulting from the grant. In some instances, Methodology, Measurement and Statistical Analysis (MMSA) personnel can serve as evaluators for the project. Ad hoc services involve simply contracting with Methodology, Measurement and Statistical Analysis (MMSA) as needed for data analysis in other contexts.

In either case, services are tailored to your particular needs.A methodologist at Methodology, Measurement and Statistical Analysis (MMSA) can analyze your data for you, with as much or as little of your participation as you desire. We are able to work with popular software packages such as SPSS, SAS, Mplus, Amos, HLM, NVivo, and others.

It is important to note the ways in which professional data services differ from the free consulting available from Methodology, Measurement and Statistical Analysis (MMSA). Free consulting is limited in time and is in many ways aimed at helping you to help yourself. Professional data service time does not require you to be an active participant and is limited only by what you seek to pay and our availability.


Effective January 1, 2020 our rates have increased for fee-based projects (see below). Individuals who already have a contract with MMSA for post-award grant support or professional data analysis will stay at the current rates.

Additional Information

As with our free consulting services, our intention is not to accrue co-authorships. Nevertheless, academic ethics of co-authorship apply (see Responsible Conduct of Research). Should we apply standard research or analytical techniques in a novel or creative way, or develop new techniques for your work, co-authorship may be appropriate.
