HIT offers three main categories of services:
Research is HIT’s primary function. Understanding the values, attitudes, and behaviors of the target audience is how we are able to deliver analytics and messaging to achieve our partners objectives. Research can be used to understand behavior, predict behavior, and ultimately, to change the behavior of target audiences.
Polls (or surveys) allow us to investigate a small sample of the target audience in order to make inferences about a broader universe. Polls are the most common research instrument in measuring public attitudes and behaviors.
Focus groups are strategic conversations with target audiences that allow us to deep dive dense topics that are limited in the forced choice of format of polls. HIT will recruit members of the target audience into live, virtual, or simulated forums that are facilitated by HIT Moderators that also match the target audience to ensure cultural sensitivity.
We apply rigorous analytic techniques to data to reveal deeper strategic insights rather than general observations. HIT Analysts and Data Scientists can compare, contrast, and regress the data to inform your decision making and communications needs.
While there is no limit to what can be done with your data, our analytics & reports focus on 6 primary outcomes:
- Attitudinal Baseline
- Targeting & Profiling
- Candidate Favorability
- Issue & Policy Priorities
- Message & Content Testing
- Media Consumption
Toplines: Word based products of the final research instrument with the results of each research question broken out by total and 1-3 demographic or geographic variables.
Crosstabs: Excel based product of every research question broken out by 20-100 demographic, geographic, and attitudinal variables.
Dashboards: Web based, automated crosstab that allows you to toggle research questions across all of the demographic, geographic, and attitudinal variables; other dashboards sort data by message efficacy, shifting audiences, etc.
Data Decks: Powerpoint based comprehensive reports that detail the key findings/executive summary, graphs and data visualizations, and strategic recommendations of the research.
