Good work in the social sector starts with good information. We’re apply best practices in survey and research design, and are able to work closely with the academic community to facilitate project definition and execution that meet the concrete needs of your organization.
We are able to perform detailed analysis and evaluation of current initiatives as well as independently seek out new data to inform future projects on your organization’s behalf. We have the in-house capacity to produce high-quality research for political or advocacy campaigns, needs assessments, and development projects.
An example of a project in this category:
Your political party is putting together the campaign for a progressive borough mayor candidate. Everyone has a lot of great ideas about how to improve the district, but in order to win you need to know what issues constituents will rally behind. The problem is that your entire staff are campaign organizers and strategists, who have neither the time nor inclination to do this research themselves.
You engage us to design a formal survey process identifying target electoral demographics and potential untapped issues of concern. We manage the hiring of district residents for door-to-door questionnaires, help you design and deploy an online survey, and compile all the data and its analysis into a report upon which you can base a winning campaign strategy.
