Qualitative + Quantitative

We combine qualitative results from our virtual focus groups with quantitative data from our rigorous surveys to provide you the deepest and richest insights available.

Consulting Services

For clients ready to conduct their own research studies but seeking additional expert guidance, we can help. From survey design to questionnaire development, from technical set-up to data analysis, that’s what we do.

How it Works

We start with a dedicated Survey Solutions 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 probability-based hybrid 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.

Why Us?

Since our founding in 1978 the Marist Poll has become one of the preeminent independent polling organizations in the world.

We’ve conducted surveys for media companies like NBC News, NPR, PBS, Telemundo, HBO, and Yahoo! We’ve fielded polls for companies and organizations such as IBM, the Children’s Health Fund, Marriott, and the Commission on Independent Colleges and Universities.

Our election surveys have earned a rare A+ from the poll ranking site FiveThirtyEight.com and Bloomberg News rated us the #1 poll in the 2016 election cycle. We’re also a charter member of the American Association for Public Opinion Research’s Transparency Initiative. We take scientific survey research seriously. So should you.
