Survey design and implementation

Survey design ensuring accurate, incisive and relevant data is essential for effective government policy development and sound business decisions.

Businesses undertake market research using surveys to better understand their customers, competitors and opportunities and make better business decisions.

Governments use surveys to evaluate how well government programs deliver services, whether those services are meeting needs, and often to contribute towards an assessment of the effectiveness and efficiency of services, programs and policy.

Using data - both qualitative and quantitative - strengthens policy development and analysis, including market and government program analysis.
