The science of surveying communities and groups has progressed dramatically over the past decade and Rainbow Research has stayed abreast of the changes. Rainbow has designed and executed a wide range of surveys measuring behavior change, coverage, client satisfaction, attitudes, demographics and other descriptive data. We have conducted face-to-face pen-to-paper surveys, telephone surveys, cell phone surveys and on line surveys, using the most cost effective and accurate sampling methodologies available.
Rainbow Research recently completed a survey of 2,017 librarians in the U.S. and Canada for the Association for Rural and Small Libraries and The Gates Foundation. By learning about the challenges facing small and rural libraries, they can use this information to strengthen their services and expand their membership.
