Our Process

Our social science research process is straightforward…

Strategic Research + Strong Data = Sound Decision-Making

When these things can happen on our end . . .

  • Asking the right research questions
  • Designing a rigorous study
  • Collecting high-quality data
  • Discerning actionable insights

Better decision-making can happen on your end.

A bigger social science research firm isn’t always better.

When we started our firm in 2015, our primary goal was to provide clients with rigorous, innovative, and accessible social science research consulting, the quality of which we could stand by 100%.

But don’t take our word for it: The proof is in our client base itself. Most of our projects come from either repeat clients or referrals from our current or past clients.

So how are we able to deliver such fantastic results, given we’re a small firm?

We’re able to work this way because of our size. We’re a small virtual firm—by design. This allows us to remain not only nimble, but also discerning about the projects we take on.

When you work with us, you’ll always have a PhD with 10+ years of research experience serving as your lead researcher. And our methodological and analytical toolbox is robust thanks to our decades of training. Which is precisely what your project deserves.

Fabulous clients, meaningful work
