ASR does qualitative research as well as quantitative research. In recent examples:
Our team worked with the Social Policy Research Centre from UNSW, conducting face-to-face interviews with detainees (irregular maritime arrivals) across Australia’s immigration detention network, including Christmas Island. This was a large qualitative project that also required deft driving skills in avoiding the indigenous crab populations wandering across the island roads.
We conducted seven stakeholder feedback projects for WorkCover NSW using qualitative depth interviewing, focus groups, phone and online surveys – these projects formed part of WorkCover’s program reviews.
The Private Health Insurance Administration Council and the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority commissioned us to obtain feedback from the businesses they regulate and other industry peak bodies – yes, of course, the response rates were excellent!
ASR conducted focus groups, depth interviews and an online survey of visitors to Canberra’s athletics and cycling hub, Mt Stromlo Forest Park – We even obtained interview feedback from marathon champion Robert De Castella and cycling legend Stephen Hodge – no autographs were claimed as part of this project.
