Membership Types

Full Service Research Company/Organization
For-profit, revenue-generating research companies/organizations whose principal business is full-service survey research. An organization's principal business shall be full-service survey research if that organization derives over 50% of its total annual gross operating revenue from full-service survey research (no dollar minimum). Full-service survey research is defined as a study in which data are gathered from respondents. Data may be gathered in person, by mail, fax, over the telephone or online, and simultaneously from groups or individuals one at a time. Doing full-service survey research means that the organization routinely renders, or arranges for (by subcontracting parts of projects) complete (full) survey research services, including but not limited to study design, questionnaire preparation, sample design, interviewing, data processing, statistical analysis, and report writing in conformity with generally accepted professional standards and with the CASRO Code of Standards and Ethics for Survey Research. Organizations that are departments, divisions, subsidiaries, or are otherwise owned and/or managed by parent organizations must qualify as a full-service research company/organization in their own right, including deriving 50% of total gross operating revenue from full-service survey research.
