Social research to inform policy

CR&C adapts effective market and social research methodologies to inform our client’s understanding of complex behaviours and perceptions. We generate in-depth and strategic information that will support our clients’ program and policy design as part of larger evaluation projects. We specialize in designing and testing telephone and online surveys using rigorous and advanced qualitative methodologies. Our national benchmarks and monitors of health behaviour demonstrate our commitment to using an evidence base for policy development and business decision making. Our award winning evaluations have been used to develop real solutions that stand the test of time.
Some examples of CR&C social research projects are:
