Survey Research Center

About Us

Housed in UWRF's Regional Development Institute, the Survey Research Center conducts affordable surveys for townships, municipalities, cities, non-profit gropus, school districts and other organizations. 

The Survey Research Center was created in 1990 by a former UWRF associate professor of agricultural economics, Larry Swain, and was expanded in 1995. The center was launced so that rural communities could get affordable, reliable information based on solid surveying methodologies.

The Center usually conducts between 25 to 30 surveys a year with 10,000-11,000 respondents a year.

The SRC employs students at UW-River Falls to mail surveys, assist in web-based surveys, enter data, and other tasks associated with data collection. 

Nice to meet you
