An American Company Serving the American People

ETC Institute, the company behind the American Survey Team is a family-owned business that was started in the Kansas City metro area in 1982.

In the past 10 years alone, ETC Institute has surveyed more than 3,200,000 people in over 1,000 US communities. We've even conducted surveys overseas for the United States armed forces in Japan and Puerto Rico.

Why We Do What We Do

Market research has a pretty bad reputation these days. ETC Institute keeps our research positive by focusing our efforts on community, organizational, and transportation survey research that can actually improve the lives of the people providing us with information.

We find out how people feel about different subjects through surveys, personal interviews, and focus groups. We analyze that data and provide insights to elected or public officials so they can improve the communities and services utilized by those people willing to take the time to answer our questions. We ask your opinions and then we use that information to provide you with the things you want. What a crazy concept right?
