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. Our capabilities encompass all aspects of survey and market research, including survey design and administration, data collection and analysis, program evaluation, and focus group facility rental and recruiting services.
Our expertise covers a wide range of research areas, including healthcare, public policy, education, marketing and advertising, and human behavior. 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.
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 organizations seeking objective information about the major issues facing the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. We are also home to the nationally recognized Franklin & Marshall College Poll, the oldest Pennsylvania statewide poll exclusively directed and produced in the state.
