When we talk about data processing at DataStar, we are referring to data entry, open-end coding, and data cleaning. Our professional data processing services are implemented seamlessly, in a way that is structured to help you from beginning to end. Whether you choose to use all of our services or a select few, it is our goal to manage whatever you need. Our services are tailored to your business and we are always available for free, no-obligation consultations about your project at any time.
- Data Entry: When you use our data entry services, you can expect the entry of your survey to be 100% key-verified for high accuracy. With fast turnaround periods and cost-effective alternatives, we can provide outputs in any format that you request. All of our work is done in the U.S. and designed to meet your specific needs.
- Open-End Coding: Coding is used when your survey contains open-ended questions or free-response answers in order to tabulate responses within intuitive categories. By reviewing survey responses and producing a comment summary, we build numeric codes based on frequency of mentions. This allows qualitative answers to be captured quantitatively and recorded in a variety of formats.
- Editing: The editing process is important in preparing surveys for data entry, especially when they are filled out in non-conforming ways. Each survey is assigned an ID number, allowing us to easily locate it during the data cleaning process. Using reliable semi-automated or manual processes, we can also clean your open-ended survey responses for profanity and other sensitive terms.
- Data Cleaning and Sample Balancing: Our data cleaning and sample balancing processes are executed to provide you with results that accurately reflect your desired population, while maintaining strict integrity throughout the entire process.
