We Collect Data
We have a long history of using a wide range of data collection strategies. We aim for and attain response rates of 80% and higher after more than one year of follow up. Philliber is a recognized leader of this in our field with presentations on how to maintain high response rates presented to the American Public Health Association. Without high response rates, the level of attrition may impact the outcome data or leave the researcher with a group that is an unrepresentative sample.
Philliber often successfully engages individuals from ethnically diverse, underserved, low income, and/or historically marginalized populations, such as members of the Latino and/or Hispanic community, LGBTQ youth, HIV patients, foster care youth, or those who have experienced trauma. Without successful engagement of these communities, projects would not have been effective and accurate data could not have been collected.
