OUR PURPOSE IS TO IMPROVE LIVES
In 1980, four researchers from UC Santa Cruz came together with a mission: Gather data. Use data. Spark change.
For over 40 years, Applied Survey Research (ASR) has been helping people build better communities. As a growing non-profit social research consulting firm, our offices in Watsonville, San Jose, and Sacramento, California help many cities, counties, foundations, coalitions and organizations measure and advance the quality of life for the people they serve. We offer award-winning research services such as community needs assessments, homeless assessments, strategic planning, program design, program evaluation, and online data dashboarding.
We are best known for our ability to help partners like you gather key data on the issues affecting your population, and to help you use this information to create strategic, lasting, and impactful solutions. Our diverse team of researchers enjoys the privilege of learning about your efforts, and helping guide your team each step of the way until you have the answers you need.
Our job is to help you create a path toward
your desired results, measure your
impact and tell your story.
Let's work together to spark lasting change.

"The investment made in selecting ASR as our evaluator has strengthened our systems, accountability, partnerships as well as funding by a minimum of three folds.
For small counties who think they cannot afford to have ASR as their evaluator, learn from us — invest in this amazing partnership so that you can grow and diversify your resources."
