Data Collection and Analysis

SCRI is well-known for our reliable data. Rigorous statistical design, methodological expertise and survey instrument design are the foundation of the Research Institute.

SCRI is part of the American Association of Public Opinion Research (AAPOR) and its Transparency Initiative and we pride ourselves on achieving excellence and holding ourselves to the highest of standards.  SCRI is staffed with several data analysts who have expertise in many types of statistical software. 

  • In 2016, SCRI partnered with the Upshot to poll across the United States.  The Upshot hosted a website that displayed the nationwide polls as the calls came in.  In an effort to bring trust back to the polls. The Upshot displayed all data and analysis in a groundbreaking transparent effort to share the data and invite others to run their own analyses.  The experts at SCRI made themselves available to all for a discussion of our methodological approach.
