Surveys provide rapid understanding of the perception of environmental issues but must be well designed and delivered to be effective.
Community surveys can generate qualitative data by sampling people's opinions and concerns to map key issues, or they can be included in community consultation projects to generate quantitative data to both ensure representativeness and understand how people's views change over time.
Our surveys can be a valuable complement to personal interviews and focus groups.
We use multiple channels to improve survey response rates and provide a rich and representative picture of people's views of the issues.
We are experienced in the design and delivery of survey questionnaires through traditional channels by mail or in person. We also use online and web based channels to enroll project participants and undertake community surveys as these digital technologies allow us to reach very broad audiences who may be dispersed over large areas.
