    What’s involved in taking a deeper look?

    Qualitative Analysis

    Qualitative research can provide rich insight into questions and help address demand-side issues. It can and should be used to answer questions of ”how” and ”why.” This is where the insight comes from exploring what lies below the surface.

    Dorsey & Company distinguishes itself with qualitative research that goes beyond quick, superficial answers and probes to learn about respondents’ motivations, perceptions and misconceptions. Our qualitative findings often provide hypotheses for deeper investigations.

    Specific qualitative services include focus groups, one-on-one in-depth interviews, dyads (interviewing two people at once) and triads (interviewing three people at once).

    Quantitative Analysis

    Quantitative research is used to make statistical projections, test hypotheses, estimate market size and opportunity, refine the definition of target markets and evaluate communication effectiveness.

    Quantitative services from Dorsey & Company include surveys, experiments, statistical modeling and predictive analysis.
