Post-War Developments in Market Research

Available to purchase in a limited-run printed format

Also available in electronic format for download

Our first publication comprises 12 chapters contributed by eminent researchers, past and present practitioners who – using material in our archive – write about a wide variety of methods and techniques that have been created and developed over the last 70 years.

The articles trace some of the important innovations and creative initiatives that formed the industry and enabled it to contribute to decision–making in so many spheres. As well as think pieces in qualitative research, we see the beginnings of approaches such as data fusion and geodemographics, development of techniques, and applications in every aspect of market and social research, including advertising, media, public opinion polling, governmental and commercial research.

‘Post-War Developments in Market Research’ is available as a 48-page book in A4 perfect-bound format. It’s also available to download free as a fully-featured PDF file.

In both cases we would be glad if you would consider making a contribution to AMSR in support of the volunteer effort that goes into preparing these publications.
