Research Consulting

Statistics Made Easy is the leading UK consulting firm providing data analysis and research consulting at affordable rates for researchers. Our services have been known for many years as being of the highest quality, and recommended by a long list of satisfied clients. 


SME offers assistance to researchers. Our service covers:

1- Formulating Testable Research Questions Hypotheses: 

One of the most challenging tasks of any quantitative research is formulating statistically sound and sensible research hypotheses. Your research hypotheses are what define and direct your study from data collection, analysis, and results interpretations and conclusions. SME can assist you in formulating your research hypotheses so that they are sound, and can be tested statistically to achieve the research objectives.


2- Statistical Methodology: 

SME helps and guides the construction of the method section of your research project. This includes sampling methods and power and sample size calculations; data collection procedures; development, validating and testing of survey instruments; determining the best and most appropriate methods and statistics tests; preparing and drafting the data analysis plan section of your research project.


3- Data Visualization, Data Analysis, Results Presentation, and Interpretations: 

The most critical section of any research project is the Results. It is where you set out your observations, including tables, figures, graphs based on the statistical analysis of your data. Our statisticians will analyse your data using the most appropriate tests and procedures. We will help with presenting the results in the format and style of your choice and with a detailed statistical interpretation of the results.


Cost and Fees: Our fees are set to be very reasonable and represent excellent value for the high standards we maintain. On receipt of an enquiry, we offer prospective clients a free, detailed initial consultation in order to be able to thoroughly address their needs. This is important to enable us to understand your exact requirements so that we can quote accurately for the assistance required. We understand that most researchers are on a tight budget. Therefore, to ensure value and cost certainty, we quote all of our work on a per-project basis. You pay for the results we actually deliver, not the time we spend working, no matter how long it takes or how many revisions you or your co-authors may require from you.


We Guarantee professional and very friendly support from the beginning of the research project to the time you accomplish your goals. We are proud of our highly qualified and helpful staff. Our team members are professional statisticians and researchers and have the ability to explain complex concepts in statistics, quantitative analysis and qualitative methods in a simple and clear way that a layman can easily follow. We do not consider our job complete with the first draft of your research project but will continue assisting you with your work until it is approved by you and your co-authors. Our consultants will advise and assist you in the preparation of your data analysis, and those sections of your work requiring data analysis or statistical calculations. They will continue working with you until you fully understand all the materials and analysis related to your work, and will ensure that you achieve the highest standards.

We help clients from all over the world. We can assist you with your research regardless of your physical location. Our clients include researchers from countries including the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Germany, UAE and many others. We understand the different requirements for different countries and written English (American, British, and Australian usages) as well as time differences between countries. 

We provide fast turnarounds and we complete most types of work within one week or less. If necessary, we have the ability to meet much more stringent timelines. Our consultation schedule is Monday to Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., and 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. On receipt of your instructions and upon agreement, we will perform the required statistical analysis or methodology work and send you a comprehensive professional report. We can help you whether you have survey data, field data, clinical data or laboratory experiments. Simply send us the data and research objectives, and we do the rest.


Our statisticians and researchers are experienced in all types of data analysis techniques and statistics tests. The academic consultants at SME have extensive and advanced experience in all types of analysis including factor analysis, all types of regression analysis (linear, logistic, ordered, generalised, and multinomial), multivariate analysis, principal components analysis, correspondence analysis, hierarchical linear modelling, linear and non-linear mixed models, structural equation modelling, partial least squares, cluster analysis, time-series analysis, survival analysis, meta-analysis, power and sample size calculations, non-parametric tests, imputing missing data, thematic coding and qualitative analysis, Bayesian data analysis, supervised and unsupervised learning, and simpler statistical methods, such as descriptive statistics, all types of charts and plots, t tests, ANOVAs, ANCOVAs, Chi-squared, correlation coefficients (Pearson’s, Spearman’s, Kendall's, and partial), etc. We are confident that we can tackle any data analysis and statistics requirement you may have.

We can carry out any form of statistical analysis, as well as proposal, concept paper development and approval process. Our researchers often come from top universities such as Oxford, Harvard, MIT, Stanford, Cambridge, Brown. Many come to us when their statistician or quantitative methodologist can no longer help due to the complexity of the work required. We never turn away a client due to research complexity, size or requirements. We understand that each person has different needs, and offer a personally tailored service that meets and exceeds the expectations of our clients.
