NCLS Research has highly developed logistical capability and research infrastructure. We run the second largest social survey in Australia, after the Australian Census. Since 1991, every census year we have successfully conducted surveys of hundreds of thousands of church attenders, over ten thousand of church leaders, and thousands of local churches. We have our own in-house hard copy survey infrastructure and our own online survey engine, as well as access to the Qualtrics online survey software.

NCLS Research’s combined research, infrastructure and logistics capabilities enable us to offer world class research solutions at highly competitive prices.
