At the Center, we provide comprehensive survey research services to both the college and outside organizations, including educational institutions, government agencies, the media, private corporations, and nonprofit groups.
Over the years, the Center has established a reputation for outstanding accuracy and reliability and insightful data analysis. We are recognized as a particularly valuable source of information for those involved in public policy, and have become a primary resource for government agencies and media groups seeking objective information about the issues facing Pennsylvania.
We are also the home of the nationally recognized Franklin & Marshall College Poll, the oldest statewide poll exclusively directed and produced in Pennsylvania.
The Center's capabilities encompass all aspects of survey and market research: survey design and administration, data collection and analysis, program evaluation, and focus group facility rental and recruiting services. Our research team’s expertise covers a wide range of areas, including public health, customer satisfaction, higher education, public policy, human behavior, and marketing and advertising.
Drawing on our deep knowledge of the various policy areas, we offer informed and thoughtful opinions about what survey results mean, guiding our clients as they use the information to answer important questions and make strategic decisions.
