It can be difficult to know how to obtain and analyse the data necessary to build a strong evidence base to answer complex and challenging questions.
Why is it difficult? Well, there may be many different processes that interact and their different effects need to be disentangled. It may be difficult to observe and measure what it is you are most interested in. The only data you can use were collected for a different purpose and so it is not straightforward to use it to answer your question. Further challenges include being limited in the available resources to build the evidence base and knowing where to seek support.
As an independent statistical consultant who enjoys. and has experience of. working on projects with these types of challenges my aim is to provide the clarity and help you need. This may be by providing advice or technical support on; the design of projects, or strategies for data collection and analysis; data analysis; presenting and reporting results; assessing whether the objectives of a project are/were feasible given the available resources, project design and data.
