EXBR methodology

Avoiding bias

Bias is one of the most fundamental of errors in qualitative analysis. Social science has shown that people often mistakenly prioritise certain pieces of evidence when drawing conclusions.

This may be due to a desire to see previous findings reaffirmed, or using the most accessible evidence or straining to connect unrelated data.

How do Oxford Analytica experts avoid bias?


Oxford Analytica is independent, so protected from partisan or ideological agendas.


The reality of events is reported without restriction, as contributors are anonymous.

Peer review

Analysis is critiqued using both internal and external experts to expose bias, provide rigour, challenge arguments and allow for new viewpoints.


Many issues in the global economy cut across regions and topics – by running analysis across experts from different fields, the blind spots inherent in any one area are identified.
