Thank you for your interest in working with CivicPulse! A core part of CivicPulse’s mission is to expand opportunities for top-quality research focused on local governance.

We currently offer two opportunities for researchers interested in fielding surveys of local government officials: 1) a fully customizable stand-alone survey option, and 2) an annual opportunity to propose content on a multi-contributor omnibus survey. 

Our team works closely with applicants to ensure they make the most of these opportunities while also safeguarding this collective resource for years to come. If you are interested in either of these opportunities, please fill out our Expression of Interest form.

Custom Survey

Custom surveys offer researchers the opportunity to survey local policymakers and/or civil servants with up to 10 minutes of content any time of year. We are happy to work with you on a custom sampling design, including options for targeted sampling. Learn more about our custom surveys.

Omnibus Survey

Once a year, CivicPulse invites question submissions for our national surveys of local elected officials. These surveys offer contributors the opportunity to obtain high quality data while saving on the fixed costs of reaching large samples of local officials. 
The deadline for the 2023 omnibus survey is January 15. Learn more about our annual omnibus surveys.
