About RAND Survey Research Group

RAND SRG includes a full-time, 40-person staff working in Santa Monica, California, and Washington, D.C. Survey directors and coordinators provide start-to-finish continuity for projects, with a single staff member taking responsibility for a project from initial design through delivery of a final product. The survey operations staff collaborates closely with the survey directors and coordinators to provide a project's operations needs--instrument layout, document production, data collection, coding, and data reduction, as well as cost control.

We have a computerized telephone interviewing center with the capability for remote monitoring by clients, as well as facilities for mail surveys, packet preparation, coding, and data entry. We also staff and carry out personal interviewing projects around the country and abroad.
