OUR METHODOLOGY

Our analyses and forecasts are based on existing scientific models, together with internally developed data models and know-how. Data is collected from publicly available sources, including data made available by international organisations and leading research institutions.

This data is further supplemented by inputs from surveys and interviews administered across our wide network of businesses and expert individuals, in collaboration with our global partners.

The data and findings are processed using advanced data analysis techniques, and finally vetted through expert scrutinisation to produce meaningful results.
