Our expertise

In our consulting we perform custom analyses using statistical models that meet the needs of the specific project.  In particular, Statistical Innovations specializes in segmentation and latent variable modeling, and the analysis of high-dimensional data  involving large number of correlated predictors. For a sample of recent projects and clients see Our Clients.

With our Latent GOLD® software and our publications we pioneered the use of latent class models to identify meaningful segments, as well as the development of typing tools to classify new cases into the appropriate segment. During these analyses, we properly adjust for response style biases and other scale usage artifacts when necessary to obtain most meaningful segments and most accurate predictions.

We also pioneered the analyses of high-dimensional data with our CORExpress® package, which implements our Correlated Component Regression (CCR) models  to obtain reliable predictions even when there are more variables than cases!
