Lindholm Research ties all your numbers together.
Economic Impact Analysis
The economic analysis methods used by Lindholm Research, like everything else done by the company, keep to the highest standards.
Lindholm Research currently uses several methods to analyze economic data.
First, Lindholm Research uses the traditional economic impact analysis method, employing input/output analysis. This method is good at getting a lot of detail for short term impact.
Second, Lindholm Research uses the more dynamic time series models.
Finally, for micro studies, Lindholm Research applies a variety of discrete and mixed variables techniques including panel data, discrete choice theory, and truncated and censored variable statistical techniques.
Geodemographics is the description of people according to where they live, derived from the study of spatial information.
The geodemographic research methods used by Lindholm Research, like everything else done by the company, keep to the highest standards.
The geodemographic methods apply both the more standard geographic information system (GIS) mapping and the more sophisticated statistical methods to geo-demographic data.
Lindholm Research sees GIS mapping as a critical way to visualize the data. And when it becomes necessary, we can apply the most advanced statistical methods, including ecological statistical inference, to the data.
Lindholm Research uses survey research in its economic research work to gather the details about firms and households.
Since we do public affairs and marketing surveys, economic surveys are not just something we have to do. We take care with the sampling and the questionnaires, as well as the data analysis in order to make sure all components of the research process are conducted at the highest standards.
