Why should I hire DK Statistical Consulting over some other firm?
At DK Statistical Consulting, you will receive personalized and prompt service. The size of our business enables us to provide you with the personal attention you need, and allows us to focus our attention on your project or study. When working with us, you will be able to take advantage of the many years of experience we have in research methodology, statistics, qualitative data analysis, and academic writing.
Do you work with clients outside of the United States?
Yes, in fact, it is common for 50% or more of our current clients to reside outside of the United States. As an online business, working with you will be as easy as if you lived across town. We offer flexible scheduling for calls and will work to accommodate any time differences we may have, with the bulk of communication with clients typically consisting of e-mails. Despite the substantial time differences, we have had many Australian clients as well as a number residing in New Zealand and Japan.
How much do you charge?
We have an hourly rate, which is lowest for academic work, higher for corporate work, and highest for legal work. We initially review a prospective client’s materials before preparing an estimate, and then provide an estimate to the client based on the appropriate hourly rate. We also have a four hour minimum for new clients, and charge a rush rate of 1.5 times our standard rate for very urgent jobs.
What is the largest data set you have worked on?
The largest datasets we have worked with were 4 GB or more in size, and contained hundreds of millions of cases and a large set of variables. We have also worked with datasets containing thousands of variables, and millions of cases. Our experience with very large datasets allow us to provide you with the efficient handling of your data, so that time and effort is not wasted using sub-optimal data management and cleaning techniques.
Do you work with non-profit organizations?
Yes, we have worked with a number of non-profit organizations. If you run or work for a non-profit, we would be happy to assist you with your study.
I have a large project which will require ongoing work for several years. Can you help me?
Absolutely. We have worked with academic clients who have conducted a series of studies over several years, as well as corporate clients who are working on very large-scale projects, or a series of smaller projects over a long period of time. We are happy to accept large jobs as well as the opportunity to build a business relationship with long-term clients.
What are the most difficult analyses you have conducted?
At DK Statistical Consulting, complex analysis is not something we avoid. While we are happy to accept simpler jobs, we enjoy complex statistical analysis as well. Some of the more sophisticated analyses and methods that we’ve used include structural equation modeling (SEM), hierarchical linear modeling (HLM), neural networks, hierarchical models testing for mediated moderation, and complex econometrics analysis.
What’s the next step?
Please Contact Us to get started. If you’re conducting a study and have these materials available, please send us a copy of your dataset, and a copy of your methodology, especially your research questions, hypotheses, and data analysis plan. If you don’t have these items, we can work with you to develop them.
