Survey research from National Research Center (NRC) at Polco provides reliable insights for local government leaders to help move their communities forward.
ICMA’s partnership with NRC provides cost-effective and accurate community engagement solutions. Local government leaders use NRC surveys for evidence-based decision-making, budgeting, performance measurement and more.
For more than two decades, NRC has served hundreds of local governments and other public sector organizations. NRC is well known for its scientific benchmarking surveys, which let you compare with hundreds of other communities around the nation.
In 2019, NRC merged with Polco, uniting the best in survey research with innovative online community engagement.
Pioneered jointly with ICMA, NRC offers and administers a range of benchmarking surveys.
NRC also conducts unique, made-to-measure research for jurisdictions seeking a completely customized experience.
All NRC surveys are now available with a Polco Performance Plan Subscription.
