For over 75 years survey research has been relatively static; ask a random sample from a representative group of users or a focus group what they would do and report the result. In this session, David Rothschild (Economist, MSR - NYC) will demonstrate how survey research can be more efficient for creating both a snapshot of the present and forecasts of the future, with new questions and accompanying methodology that can utilize more cost effective non-representative samples. The resulting snapshots and forecasts are not only more accurate than standard methods, but more timely and granular, relevant for the stakeholders, and more cost effective. Combined with a nascent growth in our ability to harness social media other new data sources, David will help explain the transformation of market research that will happen next few years.
