Services & Clients

The Population Research Center provides high quality research services from project design to data analysis and reporting. PRC has the expertise to meet clients’ research and budget needs.

Research Development

PRC helps clients determine the best methods to use to answer their research questions. Whether that means conducting phone surveys, in-person interviews, online questionnaires, PRC can help determine the most effective methodology to use and assist in writing the surveys, interviews, or other data collection tools that are needed.

Data Collection

PRC has the ability to conduct data collection through surveys and interviews by phone, mail, internet, and in-person across the state.

To conduct surveys by phone, PRC operates a 57 station Computer Assisted Telephone Interview (CATI) call center, which allows for conduct of a high volume of telephone interviews in English and Spanish.

Data Analysis and Reporting

Once data collection is complete, PRC will prepare a final clean dataset, conduct data analyses, and prepare a final methodological and findings report. PRC can also conduct analyses and develop reports on already existing data to help clients get the most out of the data they already have.


PRC has English/Spanish bilingual staff to translate research materials for Spanish speaking populations. Services in other languages are available upon request.
