GENERAL DESCRIPTION OF CLASS
The RESEARCH ANALYST 1 assists in the gathering, compiling, analyzing, and reporting of information and statistical data and assists in drafting this information or data in narrative or schematic form.
This is the first level of a four-level series. This class is distinguished from the next higher level by working from well defined guidelines under the supervision of a higher level research analyst or supervisor. Work is reviewed for accuracy and completeness. Employees in this class assist in all aspects of an analytical study from gathering information to drafting a final report. There is an absence of responsibility for projects requiring advanced statistical analysis.
DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES
RELATIONSHIPS WITH OTHERS
Employees in this class have frequent telephone or written contact with survey respondents to ask specific questions relating to an informational or statistical project. They also have periodic in person, telephone or written contact with agency personnel, other agencies, business groups, legislative bodies, associations, and the general public to respond to routine informational requests or data needs or to seek information for research projects.
Employees in this class receive general supervision from a research analyst supervisor or administrative supervisor who assigns work orally or through written instructions, explains expected results, and is available for consultation while work is in progress. Forms and reports are reviewed upon completion to ensure the final product is accurate and thorough. As performance warrants employees in this class independently conduct simple research, statistical analyses and develop description statistics (e.g., a method for organizing and summarizing information). Various support projects or tasks are assigned by senior staff and checked for accuracy when appropriate.
Employees in this class follow agency policies and procedures to determine the proper methods of performing duties. Computer manuals are used as resource material when working with computerized equipment and software packages.
