Conduct high-quality research projectswith our expertise

Designing and conducting rigorous research studies that provide valid and reliable insights requires expertise. The Elephant Path has in-depth knowledge of and experience with a wide range of quantitative and qualitative research methodologies and advanced statistical techniques. We advise on each stage of the research process and deliver customized solutions to your needs. This can come in the form of a one-time consultation or more structural support throughout your research project. 

Research design

We help you scope and develop your project. We guide you in fine-tuning and operationalizing your research questions, defining your population, and selecting your sampling methods.


We develop a data collection framework for your study. We select or design reliable measurement instruments and help you set up and send out your (online) surveys.

Measurement tools

Measuring the right information in the right way is key to solid research. We recommend existing, validated instruments or assist you in constructing valid and reliable measurement tools.

data analysis

Without data no insights. However, the most useful insights are obtained when the proper analytical techniques are employed. Too often important questions are overlooked, resulting in a loss of valuable information. The Elephant Path helps you get the most value out of your collected data. We also offer statistical support and guidance in interpreting outcomes.

thematic expertise

With an academic background in youth and adolescent development, Suzan can offer a scientific perspective to your questions about youth and their social and cultural contexts (e.g., sexual development, media use, youth culture, substance use, problem behavior) – using relevant theoretical concepts and the latest evidence-based insights.
