Capabilities and Services

NERA's Statistical Sampling and Data Analysis Group provides rigorous design and implementation of both simple and complex sample designs and analysis of the resulting data to address issues in mass torts, product liability, insurance allocation, intellectual property, antitrust, and labor litigation. Our extensive experience in sampling allows us to design cost effective sampling plans and then analyze the resulting data to make precise and accurate statements about the larger population from which the samples are drawn. We have applied sampling techniques to a wide range of large bodies of data including invoice histories, financial transactions, allegedly defective products, insurance claims, buildings or construction sites, households, and potential class members. Properly constructed samples can provide important and defensible information about large populations of people, products, buildings, or events.
