We’re known for our ability to survey populations that are hard to identify, difficult to locate, and reluctant to respond. 

Our strength lies in our deep understanding of the populations we survey. For example, for the National Agricultural Workers Survey, a nationally representative, random sample of farmworkers, we collect up to 3,600 face-to-face interviews each year. In every survey project, we take a practical and flexible approach, asking the right questions, in the language with which participants are familiar, and at the times when and the places where they are most willing to respond.

We revise and adapt our survey and sampling strategies to reflect the changing landscape of participants’ lives. We pay close attention to the nuances of successful survey research, persisting in encouraging and increasing survey engagement, while understanding and adapting to issues that hinder study participation.
