Daniel Research Group’s core competency includes instrument design, fielding management, and data analysis at the expert level.
Many of our client engagements require extensive secondary internet based research. Today, vast amounts of relevant and useful data, information and knowledge resides in the web. However, not all of it is readily available via naïve searches. Daniel Research Group has identified and catalogued hundreds of sources of econometric, demographic, industry, geographic, and technology data sets that are relevant to the design, development and application of market models and forecasts.
Most of these data sets are freely available to the public. Some are available for a fee. We have also developed a number of useful search strategies that go beyond simple search that we utilize to try to discover new data sets when required. We also utilize our Partners Network for guidance and assistance in data, information and knowledge acquisition.
Novatia Research Group has also constructed a number of business demographic historical and forecast baselines that can be utilized as input to the custom models. These baselines cover the west Africa as well as the major worldwide regions and include number of firms, number of employees and number of establishments by industry and business size class. The original data was drawn from US Government and various international econometric sources and is updated on a continuous basis. Forecasts and projections are also updated continuously.
