How the Marist Poll works

How it Works

We start with a dedicated Client Services Manager asking the right questions to understand what you’re trying to learn and about whom.

We then use our extensive experience in questionnaire development to design a survey that uncovers the information you seek. We can field your survey using our gold standard probability-based telephone methodology or a variety of other methods.

Finally, after processing the results, our experts analyze and deliver the insights and intelligence you need.

Our secret sauce

Online surveys have never been easier to do…and do poorly. There are plenty of online survey platforms but they’re only as good as the questions asked. Designing a survey to accurately discover peoples’ attitudes, opinions, and behaviors is difficult.

The team at the Marist Poll has been designing and fielding scientifically rigorous surveys for more than 40 years. We’ve asked thousands of questions to millions of people for some of the most prominent companies and organizations in the world. Now this expertise is available to you.
