Professional Data Analysis Services
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 quantitative 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, 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.
|Tier One:||$100 an hour|
|Tier Two:||$125 an hour|
|Tier Three:||$150 an hour|
Tier One: Survey construction assistance, development of web-based surveys using Qualtrics, and descriptive statistics
Tier Two: Multiple regression, ANOVA and related procedures, exploratory factor analysis, sampling, most power analyses
Tier Three: Structural equation modeling, multi-level modeling, Bayesian analyses, item response theory, mixture modeling, time series, models using discrete outcomes
To utilize our professional data analysis services, please complete a Professional Data Analysis Services Request Form. We will then schedule an initial meeting to further discuss the project.
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 write up results for publication, apply standard statistical techniques in a novel or creative way, or develop new techniques for your work, co-authorship may be appropriate.
