Post War Developments in Market Research

Available to download as .EPUB and .PDF files.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”10px”][vc_column_text css_animation=”left-to-right”]Now also available in a limited-run printed format![/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”16px”][vc_column_text]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 free as a download, either in e-book or PDF format. It’s also available in a limited-run printed format, for a small fee and a donation to AMSR.
