Bringing innovative data science and survey methods to social and political research, we help our clients understand a rapidly changing world. 

What we do

We understand that our clients run surveys for a reason: to gain insights they can use

Accurate information and high quality research are vital for understanding the world, and for informed planning, decision-making and campaigning.  


Accent Research exists to provide our client with this information. Whether it is for political, corporate or academic research, gathering useful and usable insights sits at the heart of everything we do.  

 

We aim to be the most innovative social and political research firm in Australia: combining the expertise gained working on political campaigns, in academia and advocacy roles with a constant drive to adapt and find new and better ways to do things.

Innovative methods

Harnessing the tools of data science, we provide our clients with some of the most advanced techniques available for survey research and analysis. 

We know that our clients want the best, and we make sure to stay up to date with the latest research in survey research methodologies and data science.  This allows us to provide more sophisticated analysis than is possible from other social and political research firms. 

We are the leaders in the use of MRP to conduct small area estimates for political research in Australia, and have used these to provide political campaigns with intelligence down to the level of individual electorates, helping them develop the strategies needed to win elections.


Using these methods, we work with political, health and other campaigns to understand public opinion, identify the best ways to engage with the community, and to test the effectiveness of policies and messaging. 

Survey research

With years of experience working on some of Australia's largest election campaigns and research conducted at the country's top universities, our deep understanding of demographic patterns and electoral trends allows us to build high-quality representative samples and make sense of the results for our clients.

We have worked with campaigns to help them understand where resources need to be allocated as they develop strategies, with political consultancies to test messages, and we have run the largest academic election surveys ever conducted in Australia to collect the data needed for social science research.

Building partnerships

High quality research cannot be mass produced. At Accent Research, we do not believe in providing one-size-fits all, cookie-cutter solutions for our clients. We see the individuals and organisations we work with as partners. We always take the time to learn about our clients' needs and the solutions required to meet them.
