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.
