Top Spots Where Researchers Turn for Help
There are two things that make me most proud of my company, Versta Research.
First is the work that clients pay us to do, because we put so much thought, care, and rigor into delivering the insights they need. Nothing goes out the door without me feeling like we’ve “owned” the work completely, and I feel proud of it.
Second is the deep expertise that we continually build upon, cultivate, and share with our clients and colleagues every week with industry articles and commentary. I feel proud when you, our readers, send me brief notes like this one I received last week from a Director of Research I’ve never actually worked for: “Thanks for the ongoing stream of helpful info.”
Today, on this last day of the year, I am looking back at 2018 at the 18 articles we wrote that research clients and colleagues relied on most:
- How to Label Your 10-Point Scale
- Survey Scales Go from Bad to Good
- Merging Zip Codes with Census Data
