Omnibus Survey Benefits

An omnibus survey is a survey that combines questions from multiple clients who all share the cost of conducting the survey.  Each client is given the data (survey responses) to their specific questions. 

Through the AmeriSpeak Omnibus, researchers can access the best-in-class AmeriSpeak Panel and collect survey data in just over one week.  By combining your questions with other clients’ questions in our monthly survey, you also save on survey costs while obtaining the benefits of AmeriSpeak’s sample quality.
