Research & Development

Research and development (R&D) is essential for enabling Dev-Analytics to deliver consistent high-quality client services.  We also value R&D for the contributions it helps us make to the broader field of knowledge.  Dev-Analytics is applying advances in data science and technology to our research on significant economic and social issues as well as in the development of new product solutions to help address these issues.  Below are our major R&D areas.
