Experience Counts!

Research Advisory Services (RAS) is a public policy and healthcare research consulting firm offering a broad range of services to support strategic decisions by local government, private businesses and non-profit organizations. At Research Advisory, we make it our mission to improve the quality of public decision-making.

RAS specializes in the analysis of data about geographic areas – census blocks and tracts, Zip Codes®, voting precincts, land parcels, and traffic analysis zones, with over 25 years of industry experience.

Well-researched facts and substantiated conclusions are keys to gaining the credibility needed to achieve results. RAS is respected statewide for expertise in helping decision-makers get the answers they need using reliable and defendable data. RAS works closely with clients to help them represent their interests to state and local policy-makers with research findings that are compelling and factually sound.

RAS has developed sophisticated techniques for simplifying large databases by:

  • Examining and displaying statistical relationships between variables,
  • Using proprietary methods for identifying and extracting relevant data, and
  • Creating maps to display the geographic distribution of demographic or program data.

RAS has amassed a large holding of Arizona-focused data files, computer models, GIS layers and analysis methods. We hit the ground running, with minimal time lost in assembling resources.
