Government & Municipalities

In recent years, Critical Insights has been commissioned to work with a number of local, city and town governments and other municipal groups.

Indeed, municipalities are increasingly turning to commercial market research firms in order to plan effectively for their futures. These commissioned studies provide communities with resident information and assessments of programs and services that are crucial inputs that enable governments to be guided by the needs of their constituent populations.

Mindful of governments' frequent need to manage and contain costs, Critical Insights prides itself on being able to develop and execute research that works efficiently to provide the actionable information required by today's municipal clients.
