TNS Social Research

Inspiring social policy makers

The needs of Australians are changing rapidly and government policies and social programs must respond.

TNS Social Research delivers robust and innovative research to guide development of these policies, programs and social marketing strategies, and to evaluate their effectiveness and return on investment. Each year, we speak to tens of thousands of Australians through industry-leading quantitative and qualitative methodologies to help us get closer to the ‘moments of truth’ and assist our clients in making important decisions.

As part of the world’s leading government and social research unit (we have over 500 dedicated social researchers in more than 40 countries), we are a recognised research partner inspiring Australia’s social policy makers with action-oriented analysis and evidence-based recommendations. We deliver insight in a wide range of social policy areas: health, ageing, disability, families, education, early childhood, employment, Indigenous, environment, immigration, refugees, justice, road safety, social services, welfare, taxation and tourism – to name a few. We specialise in strategic research to inform and evaluate social programs, behaviour change, social marketing and communications, and service delivery improvement.
