Professional Field Research

Amplitude's professional staff will ensure all necessary compliance so that the safety, security, and other local, state, and federal guidelines for field interviewing in private and/or publicly owned spaces are met. No field research is conducted without the express consent of the owner of the property and a clear understanding of applicable guidelines. Our client will receive advance drafts of all survey instruments for approval before intercept surveys begin. In addition, a senior member of our field market research team would provide onsite supervision of field interviews and ongoing monitoring of data collection activities. More specifically, a senior survey researcher would fly to the fielding location and provide in-person supervisory services to insure compliance and quality feedback.

Foreign Language Field Interviewing

We also welcome Spanish and Portuguese language intercept survey projects, including bi-lingual field interviewing at those locations with multiple language requirements. Full-service language translation services are also available for survey design and open-ended responses.
