Models & Tools

Empirical Social Research

Evidence-based policy advice.

All Prognos’ work has an empirical basis. This encompasses econometric analytical competence, and the methods employed in empirical social research.

The Prognos toolbox contains long-proven and innovative tools that are tailored for use in each respective project context. Depending on the assignment, we combine:

  • Data and document analysis
  • Expert discussions
  • Group interviews
  • Workshops
  • Standardised online surveys

What we never lose sight of: every method is only as good as its solid, scientific conception.
