Individual attention by a dedicated expert

Beck Research is a small, boutique firm by choice. Debbie Beck is personally invested in every project and oversees all aspects of the research. We provide a high level of individual service to each client and only take on a small number of races and organizations each year.

We are an independent-minded firm that works to advance issues and tackle tough and complicated subject matter.

custom-tailored research

Custom-tailored research to meet your objectives

We provide highly “custom” research so that you receive surveys designed specifically for you and your particular situation, not “off the shelf” research produced by junior staff. We start every project by learning about your goals and then designing a research program to achieve them. Always keeping your needs and objectives top of mind, we then develop the best method of data collection, assemble a team to conduct the interviewing, handle the data and run sophisticated statistical models.


Cost effective and superior solutions

Pinpoint accuracy, academic training, and real-world know-how come together through quantitative and qualitative research. No matter the form or size of the research our unique approach means you get smart, flexible, high-quality information and actionable results. We also invest a larger percentage of the budget in interviews more than other firms.

in-house research director

Your “in-house” research director

Many advocacy organizations lack a dedicated research staff. Debbie often acts as your “in-house” research director, working with organizations to craft research from its conception and planning to releasing the information and providing guidance along the way. Although a typical project takes a few months to complete, Debbie is also available to offer input on how to get the most out of the results.

On-target strategy requires reliable data and an actionable plan. Not only will your research be accurate, but we’ll interpret, synthesize, and extend the data into strategy.
