Qualitative Research

Research Dimensions follows the QRD Focus Groups Code of Standards and the QRCA by-laws; we were instrumental in drafting the QRD code of ethics

Where appropriate, group respondents are double-screened to exclude "professional" respondents and to ensure articulateness.

Quantitative Research

Questionnaires are pre-tested in-house and then among actual respondents in order to ensure correct logic flow and comprehension.

Supervisory personnel monitor 15% of all telephone and in-person interviewing. We validate 15% of all interviews.

Code lists are initially based on lifting 30% of verbatim responses.

100% of each new coder ’s work is checked by a supervisor, and 20% of all coders’ work thereafter.
