Vivic Research offers community-focused economic and public policy research that puts people first. We provide our clients with the tools and support to meet their advocacy goals by producing comprehensive deliverables suited to mixed audiences.
Economic Research & Intersectional Data Analysis
Economic theory currently plays a major role in political decision making and can be a powerful tool to expose inequalities and to assess if a policy is meeting its stated objectives. Examples of services we offer include comparative studies, time-series analysis, salary anomaly studies, and needs assessments. We incorporate quantitative findings from our focus groups, surveys, and interviews to data-driven projects to ensure that our findings are data-driven and are anchored in lived expertise.
Policy Design & Recommendations
We conduct research acknowledging that no research is objective or neutral and rely on evidence and critical thought to inform our work. We believe that informing policies that examine issues from an intersectional lens is critical because our current structures are malleable, and we can use research to resist and change them.
Advocacy Support & Guidance
We believe that our work cannot be separate from on the ground organizing and mutual aid. Supporting public education initiatives and political engagement is part of what we do for our clients to ensure their projects have a lasting impact. Developing deep connections with the organizations and communities we work with is a priority for us.
