today. tomorrow. together.
At Vivic Research, we support agents working toward social justice with economic and data-driven research. We serve advocates, think tanks, governments, labour unions, and other agents engaged in the development of public policy. We empower our clients with economic knowledge through our practice areas: economic research, data science, and training.
We develop boutique research studies focusing on targeted issues related to the intersection of policy, economics, and social justice. This includes but is not limited to literature reviews, policy recommendations, community consultation and cost/benefit analysis. Our past work has included costing an alternative municipal budget for the city of Ottawa with an emphasis on racial and gender equity, research on Employment Insurance and best practices for post-secondary education fees and debt cancellation.
We provide personalized training on quantitative research methods for teams, helping them build confidence and do their work more efficiently. Vivic offers SPSD/M training for beginners and more experienced users. Our introductory training "Getting Started: Policy Analysis Using SPSD/M" gets researchers quickly up-and-running with SPSD/M, saving time and frustration.
We develop processes for procuring, organizing, and analyzing information effectively and efficiently. We also provide our clients with analysis they can easily replicate such as annual factsheets or reports.
