Social and market research

Social and market research

Deep dive into people’s worlds to identify information to drive decision-making and develop fit-for-purpose solutions.


Our experience and strengths

Scarlatti’s approach is different; we create tailored approaches to individual problems.

We are experienced in measuring and evaluating a range of variables, typically to help evaluate and shape practice change initiatives.

Our social and market research work has spanned a range of work areas – from conducting one-on-one farmer interviews on farm, through to large-scale online surveys in the building and construction industry.
