  • FIELD RESEARCH

UCFS provides field research services that include interview preparation, data collection and processing of the questionnaires.

  • PUBLIC OPINION ANALYSIS (POLLS, "BAROMETERS") AND PANEL DISCUSSIONS

UCFS offers the possibility of designing and implementing opinion and behaviour barometers on various aspects of political and social life. The value of barometers lies in the creation of time series or longitudinal data and therefore allowing for the prospect of long-term assessments of the political and social trends. At the same time, we offer the opportunity of designing and implementing research panels, i.e. panel surveys enabling precise time determination of behavior/attitude (political or social) changes.

  • RESEARCH ON SPECIFIC POPULATIONS

This field consists of research/investigations made within firms/organizations, populations of a specific professional category (e.g. lawyers, doctors, journalists), and special investigations "power groups" (such as the country's political elite, the business elite, etc.). These surveys are called "specific" because they require different sampling design, different (and often simultaneous) data collection methods and specialized questionnaires.

  • FIELD OBSERVATIONS  

Field observation method stems from Anthropology and it belongs to Ethnographic methods. It consists of observing a behavior (or a phenomenon) in the environment in which it occurs. In this case, the subjects of the investigation are not being questioned in relation to their behavior, but instead observed by the researcher. Field observation is especially suitable for investigating topics that may not be assessed as important by the respondent and hence not suitable for the interview process.

  • ORGANIZATIONS, PROGRAM & INTERVENTIONS EVALUATION

UCFS has both the scientific knowledge and the appropriate scientific tools that enable the Center to evaluate programs, actions and interventions implemented by various organizations as well as the impact of these actions to the target population. In addition, the Centre provides services relating to the assessment of an organization or its members.
