Decision Analyst's Global Online Panels

Our worldwide online panels set a new standard in data quality and comparability from country to country.

Global Survey Panels

These double opt-in panels are all carefully recruited and rigorously managed. Recruiting of new panel members is continuous. Nonresponders, respondents who spend too little time completing a questionnaire, and nonserious respondents are continuously purged from our panels. Sophisticated sampling software balances the sample in each country to make it as representative as possible. The sample is metered out slowly to ensure equal response across time zones. All survey participants are fairly paid for their time, and the number of surveys per person is limited.
