1. Data Collection & Preparation in Marketing Research
Regardless of whether your sample is large or small, how you process the data you collect from marketing research will have a huge impact on its value. In this lesson, we'll examine how data is tabulated from traditional methods and online surveys.
2. Data Coding & Scoring in Marketing Research
When you ask people open-ended questions, you get longer answers that don't lend themselves well to statistical analysis without some manipulation. In this lesson, we'll examine the process of coding and scoring these types of responses.
3. Variable Respecification in Excel
When performing market research, it's not uncommon for raw data to be adjusted in order to improve the accuracy and quality of the answer to the research question. In this lesson, learn how Microsoft Excel can help researchers adjust these variables.
4. How to Code & Recode Data in Excel
When performing statistical calculations in market research, it is often necessary to convert one value type to another. In this lesson, you will learn how to re-code data in Microsoft Excel in order to facilitate data analysis.
5. Statistical Software for Marketing Research
In many cases, market research requires advanced statistical calculations in order to accurately analyze and respond to trends. This lesson explores some of the commercial software packages that perform these functions.
6. Frequency Distributions in Marketing Research
The foundation of statistical research in marketing is the frequency distribution. This lesson explores why a frequency distribution is vital for visualizing, sorting, and analyzing the findings from marketing research.
7. Using Cross-Tabulation Reports in Marketing Research
Cross-tabulation is a way of grouping two or more variables to see if there is a relationship. In this lesson, we'll examine how market researchers use cross-tabulation reports to find probabilities, patterns and trends in raw data.
8. Creating Cross-Tabulations in Excel: Steps & Examples
Cross-tabs are an excellent option for presenting data because they provide a succinct but complete picture of the material being addressed. This lesson will explore cross-tabs and the steps for creating them using Microsoft Excel.
9. Parametric & Non-Parametric Tests in Marketing Research
Parametric and non-parametric tests are analytical techniques used to analyze statistical data with differing degrees of precision and reliability. This lesson will explore both tests and will provide tips for choosing the most appropriate test.
10. Bivariate Analysis & Perceptual Mapping in Marketing Research
Bi-variate analysis is one of the most basic and straightforward statistical methodologies used in a number of different disciplines including market research. This lesson explores the fundamental components of a bivariate analysis.
11. Applications of Advanced Data Analysis in Marketing Research
When research questions are complex, advanced statistical methods can answer tough questions with accuracy. This lesson will explore some of these methods.
