Custom Surveys & Research
We are experts in designing and delivering customized surveys, focus groups, interviews, and more. Whether you have existing data that needs analysis or want to build something from scratch, we can help you understand the questions you want to ask and then get you the data you need to answer them.
Data with Heart
At Springtide, we’re committed to data with heart. That means we are going to listen, first. It’s the commitment we make to young people in our own research, and it’s a promise we extend to you, as well. You know your community, your question, your concern, better than anyone. Listening is at the heart of sociological research, and the data we deliver reflects that heart.
Who We Are
We are social scientists led by Dr. Josh Packard, Executive Director of Springtide Research Institute and Megan Bissell, MA, Head Researcher. Our unique, applied approach is grounded in a sociological perspective and leverages extensive expertise in the religious landscape in America to yield findings that are actually useful. From our initial objective mapping to the final deliverable, we handle all aspects of your research project so you can focus on doing what you do best: caring for the lives of young people.
