As a global market research provider, Ipsos has a full range of Omnibus survey research services designed to help solve your business challenges and meet your needs in terms of speed, representative samples, geographical coverage and price. Omnibus surveys are ideal for target profiling, market sizing, calibration, political polls, multi-country projects, multi-waves, pre and post evaluation, alternatives screening, and for gauging quick reactions to topical issues or market events. Omnibus surveys allow fast answers to your burning questions and to make decisions based on consumer input, rather than on guesstimates, without jeopardising your speed to market.
We offer Online (including a 24-hour fieldwork), Face to Face (CAPI), and Telephone (CATI) Omnibus survey research services. We also offer targeted and multi-mode approaches and international coordination services.
As well as providing high data quality standards on many socio-demographic criteria, we can offer ready-to-go data formats or give you access to our complete client-portal-dashboard.

Representative and robust sample
We offer a nationally and regionally representative sample of 1,000 or 2,000 adults (depending on country and data collection mode). We collect extensive background information on the respondent and the household; covering everything from standard demographics to areas such as internet usage. All this information is available, either for targeting your questions on particular respondents or for profiling your results.
