Research

Since SDG’s inception, research has been at the core of our work. Whether identifying trends, searching for opportunities, identifying best practices, making comparisons, or locating resources, our staff continually seeks the most complete and most recent sources of data. The ability to communicate the meaning of data is equally important.

We know that the majority of decision makers in business and in the community want clear answers and explanations regarding important issues. SDG is your best bet when it comes to making the point and communicating it to leaders, workers, customers, volunteers, regulators, inspectors, administrators, and the general public.

The following are some of the types of research we implement for your business or community

  • Needs Assessments

    To fulfill needs, first we must know what they are. SDG can conduct a general needs assessment to identify overall community development needs.

  • Demographic Profiles

    A community is made up of people. By knowing the skills, strengths and weaknesses of its residents a community can best decide its future.

  • Feasibility Studies

    Plans for revitalization can only work if they are feasible. These studies figure out if you have the right resources to complete a certain project.

  • Statistically Valid Surveys

    Make sure that the information you are using is correct. The data can help you foresee obstacles, guide your process, and better meet the needs of your community.

  • Focus Groups

    It is beneficial to know what others are thinking. These provide insights that are necessary to your project’s success.
