Social IMPACT Research Center
The Social IMPACT Research Center is a full-service research and evaluation resource. IMPACT’s research helps organizations raise the profile of social issues and promote solutions that improve the quality of life for poor and low-income individuals. Since 1989, IMPACT has been investigating a variety of social issues and solutions. Through nearly a decade of producing the annual Report on Illinois Poverty, IMPACT has become the established source for data on poverty issues. Our work resonates with elected officials and non-experts due to our effective way of communicating otherwise complex and confusing data.
The hallmark of IMPACT’s work is our poverty, economic security, and housing-related research. Through nearly a decade of producing the annual Report on Illinois Poverty , IMPACT has become the established source for data on poverty issues. Our work successfully resonates with elected officials as well as non-experts due to our effective way of communicating otherwise complex and confusing data.
Each of our research projects is formulated to leverage strategic policy change or program enhancement. IMPACT frequently works with groups to identify data that support the case for needed policy change. Our data is leveraged and used by many groups in their action alerts and issue fact sheets. Additionally, our analyses and reports are user-friendly and geared toward real-world application, including only the most salient data and presenting it in meaningful ways.
Whether you’re looking for a program evaluation, a needs assessment, mapping, focus groups, surveys, or other research services, IMPACT customizes each project to meet the unique needs of our clients.
