Each year we undertake between 30 and 50 research projects, both small and large. The majority of our projects are telephone, mail, or web surveys, ranging in size from approximately 200 to more than 5,000 participants. Other projects include focus groups, which normally include no more than 10 - 12 participants, and depth interviews, conducted in-person or on the phone, which usually have between 50 and 250 participants. Statistical analysis and program evaluation projects often involve analyzing pre-existing data, such as U.S. census and tax information or student test scores.
In addition to conducting survey research on behalf of clients, we also pursue scholarly research, primarily in the focus areas of healthcare, government, education, public policy, and voting behavior. We also study the methodologies and mechanisms of survey research itself. Over the years, we have published many papers on these and other topics.
