The Abacus Difference


  • EXPERTISE. Work is always conducted by a Partner in Abacus Associates, which means your project will be handled by a Ph.D. with rigorous trained in research methodology, decades of hands-on experience in public opinion research, and the ability to communicate complex research findings to lay audiences.
  • SPEED. A track record of meeting clients’ needs for immediate turn-around on last-minute projects.
  • QUALITY. Going the extra distance to ensure high quality data, thorough analysis, and actionable recommendations.
  • PERSONAL TOUCH. Working closely with you to understand your specific needs. No template surveys. No stale PowerPoint presentations. No rote analysis or canned reports.
  • SIZE. The size of the firm is intentional—large enough to handle large projects and small enough for Abacus partners to see all projects from initiation to conclusion.
