RESEARCH METHODS

Statistical and Big Data Analytics

ESI ThoughtLab is experienced in using statistical and big data analytics to deliver evidence-based research and enrich thought leadership insights. Our projects run the gamut: the future of work and management diversity to micro data on home sales, demographic patterns, and product shipment trends.  Our team of economists and thought leadership specialists have the analytical tools and econometric skills to mine, process, and analyze extremely large and complex sets of data—often with millions of observations and variables. Drawing on our advanced statistical GIS expertise, our economists can uncover hidden patterns, causal correlations, critical market trends, customer preferences, and other useful business information. We have the tools to identify complex and subtle relationships within the data, handle computations of forecasts and counterfactuals, and conduct hypothesis testing and scenario framing.
