ICF Research + Evaluation Quantitative Methods + Analysis

Quantitative Methods + Analysis

ICF International supports clients by providing a range of quantitative methods and analysis, designing data collection and methodologies, analyzing information, and disseminating results.



With more than 20 years of experience in quantitative methods and analysis, ICF has the flexibility and expertise to perform the full spectrum of quantitative data collection methods and analysis activities, either individually or as a complete cycle, including:

  • Web, telephone, paper/mail, in-person, and hybrid surveys
  • Cell phone data collection
  • Secondary data research
  • Sampling/weighting
  • Propensity score matching
  • Path analysis
  • Structural equation models
  • Database development and data management

We are experienced in performing multisite quantitative analysis, applying a set of research questions, sampling strategies, and data collection activities that can range from a single site to more than a hundred. ICF helps clients strike the balance between systematic performance and nuanced execution that results in maintaining consistency, relevance, and quality of data and analysis throughout the process.

ICF has used quantitative methods and analysis expertise to assist clients in a broad range of areas, including transportation, public health, natural resources, education, human trafficking and victim services, housing, justice, and energy. While rigor is paramount, ICF’s extensive work in human services means we understand our clients’ missions. Whether the goal is to reduce human trafficking or protect the nation’s fisheries, we apply objective quantitative skills with full awareness that policy and decisions about the programs we study will affect people’s well-being.
