HSCIC analysts and data experts have experience of running complex health surveys.
They can carry out surveys on behalf of other organisations, both local and national. The service includes:
• offering advice on running and commissioning surveys
• commissioning and managing whole surveys
• adding questions in existing surveys
• adding sample boosts in existing surveys.
A sample boost involves carrying out additional questionnaires to build a more robust sample depending on customer requirements, for example additional surveys could be conducted for a certain geographical area or a certain demographic group.
