Langer Research Associates owns the software application PARC, for "Polling Archive" - a unique, customized data management system for survey research professionals, designed to our specifications.
Using a SQL server database, PARC allows users to search for any poll question or phrase in any survey topline, programmed questionnaire or analytical document on file, and links these and other records together for full access to trended historical data, datasets, file memos, presentations and field work reports.
PARC’s delivery of past questions and results significantly speeds the process of new questionnaire design, while enhancing consistency in wording and ordering. Equally useful, its access to programmed questionnaires eliminates coding discrepancies; repeat questions are simply reassembled from their last asking.
PARC’s linked file system creates significant efficiencies in survey retention, recall and re-analysis alike. We couldn’t live without it. Call us for an introduction to PARC and its possibilities.
