BGR Analytics

Giving clients the data they need for the most important decisions they make.

Powered by our Data Science team, BGR Analytics ranks the world’s countries by analyzing data from multiple sources to create actionable reports that deliver unique insights and a competitive edge.

Make Decisions Based on Data, Not Hunches

Data should drive every major decision a client faces today, whether it’s choosing an energy source or a factory site, or telling their story in Washington. The stakes are too high for these decisions to be made on conventional wisdom, untested assumptions, instinct or anecdote.

BGR Analytics uses data-based research and proprietary methodologies to create innovative, custom analytics tools that help tell clients where they should – and should not – spend their money.

BGR Analytics is a key asset for clients facing an evolving, global landscape where data, network analysis, and artificial intelligence play increasingly powerful roles in risk assessment, Washington advocacy and communications.

A Modern Strategy for Data Analytics Tools

A key differentiator – BGR Analytics Indexes incorporate digital sources like online news and social media along with data from traditional categories.

Online reputation and social media conversations have become vital parts of risk analysis and advocacy strategy and are integral to comprehensive risk assessment.

BGR ensures your data analytics report covers all the bases and delivers key data points necessary to make a confident and advantageous decision.
